Situated at the north of Santorini, Ios is famous for its numerous, unspoiled, sandy beaches. Dozens of kilometers of golden and white sand compose a scenery of rare, exotic beauty.

Together with its natural allure, Ios offers a combination of ancient history, myths and traditions. The 4500 years of human civilization left their traces in every corner of the island: from the Neolithic settlement of Skarkos (awarded the 2008 EU Prize for Cultural Heritage), the ancient walls of Chora and Homer's tomb to the medieval village, the Byzantine/Venetian Palaiokastro, the hundreds of Byzantine churches and the kilometers of centenarians hiking trails, the human creative presence is highly perceivable.


Whether discovering it through the eyes of a tourist, a nature buff, an athlete or an artist, Ios will captivate your senses, your mind and your soul!

Those are the coordinates of the island Ios, engraved on a tiny plaque I wear around my neck every summer. No, I’m not a Niotissa myself (that is to say, a native of Nios, as locals tend to call their island); yet, Ios is so close to my heart that, much like a kid, I count down the days every winter until I return there...
