About: The Cyclades are an island group in the Aegean Sea, southeast of mainland Greece and a former administrative prefecture of Greece. The Cyclades includes about 220 islands. The name “Cyclades” refers to the islands forming a circle (“circular islands”) around the sacred island of Delos. Most of the smaller islands are uninhabited. The largest island of the Cyclades is Naxos, however, the most populated one is Syros.
The islands are peaks of a submerged mountainous terrain, with the exception of two volcanic islands, Milos and Santorini. The climate is generally dry and mild.
The plan for the first day is to arrive on a Saturday in Lavrion and get to the Marina. Your check-in on the boat will be at 5 PM and you will spend the night there. You can visit the old Lavrion mines in the Archaeological Museum of Lavrion.
