Welcome to Kythnos !!!


Since ancient times Kythnos used to be an island with a neuralgic position in the Greek dominance and from excavations that took place in the last years there appear to be signs pointing Kythnos as the place where the first Cycladic civilization began. Evidence showing exactly that these assumptions are true, are the recent paleontological findings of four tombs from the Mesolithic period. Much later the Mesolithic period Aristotle mentioned in one of his books that the civilization in Kythnos was ideal, the term that he used was “Kythnion Politeia”, meaning Kythion State and describes the island's correct way of governing.

Kythnos is located between the islands of Serifos and Kea and its distance from
Piraeus is only 2 hours and 50 minutes. There is also a boat that leaves from Lavrion and takes 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach Kythnos. The island has approximately 1560 permanent residents, whereas during the summer months it is full of tourists both Greeks and foreigners.
The island of Kythnos has public transportation and taxis for your transfers around the island, going to the beach or sightseeing, but you can also rent a car or a bike from one of the many car rental places.
