Car Rental in Tinos

Tinos is a Greek island situated in the Aegean Sea. It is located in the Cyclades archipelago. In antiquity, Tinos was also known as Ophiussa (from ophis, Greek for snake) and Hydroessa (from hydor, Greek for water).

Tinos is famous amongst Greeks for the Church of Panagia Evangelistria, its 80 or so windmills, about 1000 artistic dovecotes, 50 active villages and its Venetian fortifications at the mountain, Exomvourgo. On Tinos, both Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic populations co-exist. This church is the most important pilgrimage site for Orthodox Greeks as well as Tinos’ emblematic monument.

In Tinos town, you can also visit the Archaeological Museum and admire its collection of sculptures found in the Sanctuary of Poseidon and Amphitrite, located North of Chora.

Volax, this village surrounded by hills is located 6 km away from Chora. Volax is especially famous for the unique landscape surrounding the village: many round granite rocks, of all size and shapes are laying in the valley! A few centuries ago, people used to believe these rocks came from a meteor shower. In fact, a very uncommon geological phenomenon created this magnificent scenery. Even if Volax is a very small village, you will find here several shops and taverns. As the place isfamous for basketry, you can take some time to admire the basket weavers at work. There is also a small outdoor theatre.

Kardiani and Isternia are respectively 17 and 20 km away from Chora. You can’t miss these 2 villages, as they are on the main road connecting CHora to the North of the island. When driving on this road, you will enjoy many splendid views over Yiannaki Bay and its beaches.

Kardiani is located on the mountainside and is probably Tinos’ greenest and most picturesque village. As it’s built on cliffsides, you will have to get up and down quite a few stairs to discover it. It’s clearly worth the small effort: you will be rewarded by the breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea.
