"PATMOS:You must visit..." Greece Favorite Tip by tak_pap

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: PATMOS:
You must visit Patmos the northest island belonging to the Dodecanissos group of islands. It has a very salubrious climate and a clear atmosphere.
Visit Hora, a medieval village around the Byzantine monastery of St.John.
(unique village with white houses in the typical Aegean style).

There are many restaurants on the island. Taverns with music (using native instruments) can be found at Griko, Lampi and Kambo. Bars and clubs you can find in Chora, Skala, Meloi and Kambo.

Transportation:
From Piraeus there are 5 to 9 ferries a week depending on the season (distance:163 nautical miles, duration:10h).
Patmos is also connected, by ferry, with the islands Leros, Kalimnos, Kos and Rodos, Lipsous, Nisiros, Tilos, Simi, Kastelorizo, Siros, Ikaria, Fournous, Lesvos, Limnos, Paros, Naxos, Mykonos and Tinos.
For more information contact the Coast guard of Piraeus tel. (01) 4226000-4.
