Everything You Need to Know to Visit Delos Island in 2023

The small island of Delos has one of the most important archaeology sites in Greece. The only way to visit the site is to get a day return ferry from a nearby island (Mykonos, Paros or Naxos). There is no accommodation on the island. As an archaeologist who has visited the island a number of times, I set out all the information and tips you need to make your visit to this extraordinary archaeological site a memorable one, whether you are passionate about Greek history or just an incidental visitor. I strongly recommend you buy a ferry ticket in advance, particularly for the busier months.

Please Note: Delos is closed until the end of March 2024.
