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.
Thira is the official name of the island of Santorini, Greece and is located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of mainland Greece.
Thira is essentially what remained after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.
With its dramatic views, stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches, it is no surprise that Thira is hugely popular with holidaymakers.
