If you wish to have an authentic Cycladic experience of picturesque landscapes, culinary expertise, ancient sites and monuments and endless blue views of the Aegean Sea, this is the perfect guided tour for you! Let an experienced escort show you the momentous treasures of this enchanting island and get to know Sifnos’ beauty and its highlights in a guided bus tour.

You will start your day by visiting the monastery of Panagia Chrysopigi, the most prominent monument on Sifnos and the protectress of the island, known both for its unique architecture and peaceful atmosphere. After, you will continue to Kastro village, one of the most stunning attractions of Sifnos, which was once the Capital of the island, located above the ancient port, Seralia. Walking through the narrow alleys of this white-washed medieval village is an absolute must while on Sifnos, as the entire village looks like an open-air museum with stunning panoramic Aegean Sea views. Here you can visit the Archaelogical Museum and admire a display of exhibits from the 1st– 6th century BC.

Our next stop is the traditional village of Artemonas, seemingly untouched by modern life, where you can admire neoclassic mansions built over 200 years ago, painted according to the traditional Cycladic patterns which is always a truly enchanting experience for its visitors.

On this highlight tour, we couldn’t skip a stop at the capital of Apollonia, known for its picturesque, whitewashed alleys and its main street (also known as “steno”) where all the shops and nightlife come to life due to a variety of great restaurants, bars, cafes, dessert shops, jewelry, and pottery handmade outlets.

Your last stop for the day will be a sandy beach of Vathi or Platy Yialos, where you will have approximately an hour to enjoy a meal at one of the traditional taverns or take a swim in the crystal clear waters, before returning back to your hotel.

This tour is organized (group) with minimum number of participants 8, and is offered in English and Greek language.

After, you will continue to Kastro village, one of the most stunning attractions of Sifnos. Walking through the narrow alleys of this white-washed medieval village is an absolute must while in Sifnos, as the entire village looks like an open-air museum with stunning panoramic Aegean Sea views. If you like, you can also pay a visit to the Archaeological museum of Kastro. Then, you will be driven to the village of Artemonas. In this traditional village, seemingly untouched by modern life, you will admire neoclassic mansions built over 200 years ago, painted according to the traditional Cycladic patterns which always is a truly enchanting experience for its visitors. Upon finishing the exploration of Artemonas, you will visit the most important archaeological site of Sifnos; the Acropolis of Agios Andreas. This is one of the most well preserved Mycenaean (13th century BC) fortifications in the whole of Cyclades, awarded by Europa Nostra.  This open air archeological site extends over an area of 10.000 meters and includes an urban network of buildings, temple, roads, rainwater management and various smaller movable objects. Within the site there is a small, yet rich, museum which you can visit if you wish. Next to the site, you will also find the beautiful church of Agios Andreas and its breathtaking panoramic view of the island and the Aegean Sea.
After this unique experience, you will have free time for swimming or lunch in either Vathi or Platys Gialos, before heading back to your hotel.
