About Tinos

Tinos is a wonderful island in the Cyclades cluster, considered one of the up-and-coming vacation spots in Greece. What is most surprising about Tinos Greece, is that it possesses all the characteristics that visitors are looking for in a Greek Island holiday spot, without the hustle and bustle of the major tourist resorts.

The island of Tinos is also world-famous for its art (mainly sculpture, painting and basket-weaving), as well as its architecture, particularly its intricately-decorated dovecots, marble and stone-brick houses, narrow alleyways and staircases, and marble signs. These features can be seen throughout the capital, Tinos Town, as well as in the villages, such as the mountainous Arnados, Dyo Choria, Agapi, Kambos, Isternia, Pyrgos, Koumaros, Xynara, Triandaros, Kardiani, the seaside villages of Kionia, Koumelas, Panormos, the amazing natural beauty of Volax, Komi, Loutra and Livada villages, and the holiday resort villages of Agios Romanos, Agios Sostis, Agios Ioannis Porto and Kolymbithra.
