Ios Information: Information about the island of Ios

  Ios is the most famous island in the Cyclades. Its re-putation has spread during the last years due to its unique lan-dscape, its archeological sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent seas. Ios is an island that is full of contradictions. The contradicting elements that are apparent in this small stretch of land, give the island a distinct eccentricity. Ios sways between the traditional and the contemporary, from the simple to the complex, and from the accustomed and unaccustomed elements.

Ios is composed of two shades: the summer and winter shade. Its summer shade appears to be flashy and wild. The summer sounds are even different, even a loud buzz has something wild, something out of this world to it.

During the winter Ios is authentic. It is the Ios of the good old days. Everything changes, the rhythm lowers and the lights turn off.

Whoever experiences a winter in Ios, will love and appreciate it, because they will have the chance to realize that is it a place full of character.
