Located in the Cycladese group of islands, the Greek island of Kimolos lies in the Aegean Sea, just to the north of its nearest neighbour, the island of Milos. Separating the two islands is a channel that is around 1 km wide. The island's only town is called Chorio is sits on a hill on the west side of the island. The buildings of Chorio are typical of the architectural style of the Aegean which gives off a lovely old-world charm. Houses with white washed walls and blue painted windows located along narrow cobbled streets provide the town with a deep sense of tranquillity. There are a number of places of interest in the town including the Archaeological Museum, which is opposite the Metropolitan Church of Panagia Odigitria. Contained within the museum are exhibits and artefacts showing the island's history, which includes vessels and utensils dating back to the early 7th century BC.
The island's port is located in the village of Psathi. From the port a conventional or Highspeed ferry can be taken to Piraeus. Ferries also operate to Kithnos, Serifos, Sifnos, Milos and the other Cycladic islands.
Milos is a Greek island that is the most westerly of the Cyclades group of islands and is known as the place the statue of Venus, or Aphrodite, was discovered, although the statue is now on display in the Louvre Museum in Paris. The island has around 5,000 residents that live in seven small villages dotted around the island. Unlike many of its Cycladic neighbours, tourism is a relatively recent innovation on Milos and now tourists visit to enjoy the island's lovely beaches and warm, crystal clear waters. Thanks to the island's natural landscape, which is of volcanic origins, it is sometimes referred to as 'the island of colours'.
The island is connected to the port of Piraeus in Athens, to all of the Cycladic islands, the Dodecanese islands and Crete with both ferries and high-speed catamarans. During the peak season in the summer there are daily scheduled routes to and from the island. There are two ports in Milos, the main port is in Adamas and the other port is in Apollonia which connects the island with the islands of Kimolos and Glaronissia.
