Sikinos Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands is the Greek island of Sikinos which lies between the island of Ios and the island of Folegandros. Unlike some of the other Cycladic islands, Sikinos, known as the Island of Wine, is not very well developed and therefore is much quieter. On the plus side, visitors to the island will probably find a more authentic atmosphere. There are two villages on the island. Allopronia is in the south of the island and is home to the island's port. The second village is called Chora as is located in the hills. Chora is made up of two parts. Castro to the west and Chorio to the east.

A popular attraction on the island is the Temple of Episkopi which was first thought of as the ancient temple of the God Apollo. However, following further investigations it was discovered to show signs of Roman mausoleum architecture. Built in the 3rd century AD, and modified to a Christian church with a dome and bell tower in the 17th century.

From the island's port, ferry services depart to Piraeus with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes by high speed ferry and 7 hours and 30 minutes by conventional ferry. The island is connected by ferry to Folegandros, Ios, Santorini, Serifos and Sifnos.

Kythnos Guide

Kythnos is a Greek island that is located very close to Attica and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. The island, sometimes called Thermia because of the thermal springs on the island, is one of the lesser visited islands of the Cyclades but is popular with visitors because of its thermal springs. There is a modern spa located in Loutra, with two hot springs in the area. The spring of Ayio Anargyroi and the spring of Caucasus, where the temperature of the water reaches 52C, are famous for their therapeutic effects and have been since ancient times.

The island's harbour is located at Merihas and the island's capital is called Hora and are both located in the north of the island. In the south, only the areas by the bay of Ayios Dimitrios and Panayia Canála are inhabited. This is where a famous monastery is located within a pine forest.

Ferry services from Kythnos depart to the Port of Piraeus or to the port of Lavrio. The crossing to Piraeus takes approximately 3 hours by conventional ferry and approximately one hour by high speed ferry. The crossing time to Lavrio takes about 2 hours.
