The miracle of Tinos
The hidden treasures
It’s not just because the shrine of the Holy church of Panagia Evaggelistria of Tinos is the most important orthodox shrine of pilgrimage in Greece. Not even because it’s so easy and affordable to get a ferry ticket here by Let’s Ferry. Thousands of tourists also flood the island every summer to take off their list these three must-see locations:
Isternia, or as the locals call it “the Caldera of Tinos”. A picturesque village famed for its food, its architecture and a great meeting place that apart from refreshing beverages and a big menu of mouthwatering mezedes (local delicacies), it serves the best view to the Aegean Sea and close islands.
The port of Tinos
The Costas Tsoclis Museum in Kambos’s old primary school, hosts various classical and modern pieces, art exhibitions and an innovative touch program for the visually impaired visitors.
Before you leave this mesmerizing island, don’t miss a tour to NHSOS Brewery, home of the first Greek beer awarded with a Silver European Beer Star.

Tinos likes adrenaline
From the popular scuba diving and windsurfing to the less known climbing in Exomvourgo mountain, bouldering in Volax village, and the Venetian hiking trail, Tinos has it all. Zen lovers can join some of the most well acclaimed yoga retreats throughout the year. Whichever season fits you best, Let’s Ferry is the way to book your ferry tickets here and get them at home or at the port.

Tips: Avoid the noisy middle August pilgrimage and try to visit Tinos in the end of the summer. It’s the perfect time to combine your holidays with “Jazz on Tinos” an international festival organized by the Culture Foundation of Tinos for the last 11 years. And since you are here, how about some island hopping? Book your ferry tickets online to the nearby Syros and Mykonos.
