Milos, also called Melos, is the fourth largest island of the Cyclades islands (in the southwest of the Aegean Sea). The famous statue ‘the Venus of Milos’ (an image of Aphrodite) was once found on Milos, which is now on display in Paris in the Louvre. Milos is very beautiful because of its geological diversity. The island has a volcanic origin.

The island has three large villages: Adamas (Adamantas), Pollonia and the mountain village of Plaka (the capital of Milos). The largest village, where we arrive by boat, is Adamas. In the northeast is Pollonia which is one of the most popular seaside resorts. In both Adamas and Pollonia are many nice places to go out such as taverns and kafeneions. On Milos are some very special fishing villages with houses in the rocks with brightly colored doors.
