Yialos Ios Hotel is located within steps from the port of Ios and the main attraction of the island, the Chora. You can reach Chora through a path or by renting a car or an ATV. Once in Chora, stroll around the picturesque alleys, where houses are built close to each other to be protected from the strong Aegean winds; have a coffee at a lovely traditional square and visit the Windmills and the church of Panagia Gremniotissa (Our Lady of the cliffs) with the amazing views. Look also for the church of Agia Ekaterini, built in the ruins of an ancient temple. Speaking of churches, take a stroll from the Yialos Ios Hotel to the church of Agia Irini at the very end of the port.

Other sites that you must visit in Ios Island are the Archaeological Museum of Ios and the Museum of Modern Art. If you are interested in the history of Ios then you have to know that the island claims the burial site of the ancient Greek poet Homer, thought to be on the hill of Psathopyrgos, very close to the Chora of Ios. The settlement of Skarkos is an important archaeological site of Ios also located close to the port of Ios and the Yialos Ios Hotel. The recently built Odysseas Elytis Theatre resembles the structure of an ancient Greek theatre where you will enjoy a spectacle during the summer months.
