Time to spread your wings with a special muse, the Aegean island of Tinos. Carpets of golden sands lace the coasts and spring waters create oases between its rugged mountainsides.

The locals work with such zeal to honor their little paradise that every village is a masterpiece, with a genuinely warm welcome awaiting you in each.  Also, the villages of Tinos are very interesting. Walking through them will leave you speechless! They are more than 45, all beautiful with original traditional Cycladic elements. It seems that time has stopped, so you can meet the real Cyclades, filled with light, blue, colors and sun.

The visitor’s first impression when looking at Chora is that its urban elements are more than its insular identity. But it’s wrong! The city “holds” well-kept secrets. Finally take the old road leading to Megalochari (the church of Virgin Mary), a paved pedestrian road full of little shops constructed in the middle of the 19th century.
