About SifnosWhen looking for that one of the most beautiful Cycladic islands in Greece then look no further than Sifnos and its exquisite dreamlike quality. Just three hours from Athens by high-speed ferries, Sifnos is easy to get to and you may never want to leave. A string of whitewashed villages, anchored by the capital Apollonia, sit like pearls along the crest of the island. The houses harmoniously woven knitted with the natural landscape even today emphasize the need for the respect of the civilization with which they harmoniously boarded with the passing of the centuries.
