Cyclades 7 Day Itinerary - Lavrion 2
Day 1 - Lavrion (Mainland)
Lavrion is situated at the bottom of the Attica Peninsula, 20 minutes south east of Athens airport. Lavrion offers a convenient location to explore the northern Cyclades Islands including Mykonos, Paros, Naxos and Kythnos. Lavrion itself is home to the oldest and biggest amphitheatre in the country. You will also find the remnants of old silver mines which date back to prehistoric times.
Day 2 - Vourkari (Kea Island)
Vourkari is located in the north of Kea island. The village is well protected from the prevailing winds and is home plenty of small fishing boats. The tourist industry has bought more traffic to the island looking for a peaceful little stopover. Kea is home to some fantastic restaurants serving fresh fish, lobster and other traditional dishes. If you're looking for a really quiet anchorage we'd recommend the bay around 100m from the port.
Day 3 - Finikas (Syros Island)
Finikas is a large and lively village in the southwest of the Syros Island. The harbour has plenty of space for visting yachtsmen and the town offers a wide selection of tavernas. You'll also find a fantastic beach close to the harbour where many of the locals head to during the peak season.
Day 4 - Kamares (Sifnos Island)
Kamares is the port of Sifnos and lies on the western side of the island. Sifnos is one the the best known ceramic production centres in Greece meaning you'll find plenty of workshops dotted around the town. The main settlement lies on the right of the bay and has plenty of tavernas, shops and bakeries where you can stock up. The beach has a watersports centre on it if you fancy trying your hand at something smaller than your yacht.
Day 5 - Livadi (Serifos Island)
Although Livadi is the harbour town of Serifos it has managed to retain its tradtional charm. Combine the charm with the benefits of having a wide range of restaurants, tavernas, bars and some clubs means there is something for everyone. Given the location of the town the sunrises are absolutely beautiful. A number of cafes will open early meaning you can sit and watch the sun come up whilst having the first coffee of the day.
Day 6 - Mericha (Kythnos Island)
Merichas is situated on the west coast of Kythnos island and is a small seaside village. Thankfully it has kept its traditional appearance throughout the years. The village itself only has a few permanent residents, but the village gets much more lively during peak season. You'll find plenty of tavernas offering fresh fish with tables right next to the water.
Day 7 - Athens (Lavrion)
Lavrion is only a 50 minute drive from Athens. If you haven't already visited the city we'd strongly recommend you go. There are some world class sites including the parthenon which you can visit on your final day.
