We will pick you up on our luxurious minivan from your hotel and immediately begin our Sifnos tour. The first stop is at Chrysopigi Cape, the rock with the monastery of Panagia on top, which has been declared the patron saint of the island since 1964 AD and is one of the most beautiful places on the island.
Then, heading East, we will visit the historic village of Kastro, the most picturesque area of ââ Sifnos. Life there continues independently since prehistoric era. Kastro is located on top of a rocky plateau with steep mountain slopes and panoramic views of the surrounding islands. The village of Kastro was the capital of the island until 1836.
At the southern part of the hill, we will find Seralia, the ancient port of Sifnos. We will walk through the beautiful alleys of Kastro and visit the Archaeological Museum which includes exhibits from the 1st to the 6th BC.
We continue our tour to the traditional village of Artemonas, almost untouched by modern life. While wandering around we will see the old aristocratic neighbourhood and admire the neoclassical villas, built more than 200 years ago, painted in traditional Cycladic colours.
Next, we will visit the most important archaeological site of Sifnos: the Mycenean Acropolis. Located on the top of a hill known as the âKastro tou Ai-Driaâ (Saint Andrewâs Castle), is the best-preserved Mycenaean fortification site in the entire Archipelago. The excavations brought to light a large part of a 12th century BC Mycenaean wall. Inside the wall, there are the ruins of five houses. At the entrance of the site, there is a museum, where the findings of the excavations are presented.
Near the archaeological site is the beautiful, 1701 built church of Agios Andreas, which offers a unique view of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding settlements of Sifnos.
Our last destination is Apollonia, a traditional settlement and capital of the island. It is built amphitheatrically on three hills, standing out for its beautiful, traditional architecture.
