Ios Guide

Forming one of the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Ios is located in the Aegean Sea and lies around mid way between the island of Naxos and the island of Santorini. The island's terrain is characterised by hills and cliffs that lead down to the sea on most sides of the island. Located on the north west coast is the island's port which is only a short distance from the village of Chora. The trip between Chora and the port can be made on foot which will take you along a steep donkey path, and takes around 15 minutes. The village is characterised by narrow paths and streets most of which have now been taken over by bars, restaurants, shops and night clubs to cater for tourists.

There are ferries from the island's port to Piraeus and Rafina with a crossing time of between 4 1/2 hours and 8 hours, depending on ferry type, route and destination. During the summer months Ios is also connected by ferry to the other islands of the Cyclades.

Thirasia Guide

The Greek island of Thirasia is a small island that is located to the west of the island of Santorini in the Cyclades group of islands. It has a population of around 250 people and are mainly employed in agriculture. The small island's cliffs are less steep than those found on Santorini but ascending its 250 steps from the port can still be quite a challenge especially during the summer when temperatures can be very high. Stunning views from the island include the caldera and the sunsets and sunrises. The island's only beach is full of pebbles and pumice and is located next to the small harbour. The island's only track will lead you to the Church of Agia Irini, which is said to have given Santorini its name (Santa Irini - Santorini).
