An Authentic Cycladic Experience
Over Thirty Beaches
A Multifaceted Island
Ios Island, steeped in ancient tradition, is believed to be the final resting place of Homer and the birthplace of his mother. Its name derives from the Greek word “ion,” meaning “flower,” alluding to the profusion of blooms in antiquity. This Cycladic gem offers something for everyone, from relaxing in Chora’s winding alleys to taking in the stunning sea views from Odysseus Elytis Theater. Be sure to visit Homer’s grave, a major historical monument, the windmills and catch the breathtaking sunset from Panagia Gremiotissa church.
