The Island of Venus.
Tourist, but not too much. Beautiful and wild. Milos is one of the most beautiful islands in the Cyclades archipelago.
Quiet and relaxing, and less worldly than Mykonos and Santorini, this island impresses with its wonderful landscapes. Suggestive taverns in which to admire breathtaking landscapes. Beautiful beaches, with turquoise waters, with infinite shades. Incredible natural beauties.
An island that knows how to be lively and welcoming.
Not just bays, beaches and inlets. With a thousand-year history, Milos is rich in testimonies of the past, archaeological sites, abandoned mines.
Moreover, on this island, one of the great masterpieces of Greek art was found: the Venus of Milo!
HOW TO GET
Athens is the ideal base for reaching the Cycladic island. By plane, or ship, you can easily reach your destination.
There is no better solution. In general, coming from destinations beyond Greece, the plane is preferable, making a stopover in Athens. Obviously, as long as you do not have the car in tow. In this case, in fact, the ship is the obligatory solution.
Given the direct connections, it is preferable to arrive by sea, in Milos, also from the nearby Greek islands.
Olympic Air and Sky Express provide frequent daily connections in high season to Milos International Airport.
From the airport, by bus, you can reach Adamas. There are about 8 daily runs, from 10 to around 18, with intervals of about an hour. Tickets can be purchased on board for € 1.80.
Alternatively, from the terminal, you can use the convenient taxis, for any destination on the island.
From Greece, and especially from the Cyclades, you can easily reach Milos.
Zante Ferries, SeaJet and Golden Star Ferries, are the main shipping companies that connect the island to Folegandros, Ios, Kythnos, Santorini, Serifos, Sikinos, Sifnos, Syros.
And, of course, the port of Piraeus.
Prices and crossing times vary depending on the route, and the vehicle.
From Santorini, for example, you can get in about 2 hours by hydrofoil, or almost 6 hours by ferry. In the latter case, you can take advantage of reduced rates over 50%, and the possibility to board your car.
CAR AND SHIP
For those wishing to venture out on a car trip, we recommend reaching the Athenian port of Piraeus.
Naturally, the distances and travel times must be taken into account.
Piraeus is one of the most important naval ports in the whole of the Old Continent. Suffice it to say that more than 20 million passengers pass through here every year. It is about 11 kilometers away from the Capital.
From the port of Piraeus, it takes about 3 hours with a quick connection, and just over 6 hours by ferry. The latter is the most economical solution, which allows the transport of the car.
