The Grotto of St. John - Patmos Island Tour


Grotto of St. John - Exiled from Ephesus in 95 AD, St. John the Theologian retired to a cave on Patmos, where he recorded his divine visions in the Book of Revelations. The chapel displays a stone that the saint used as his pillow. A small chapel marks the cave site.

Monastery of The Apocalypse - Founded in 1088, the monastery perches on a hillside above Chora. A single entrance leads through the 59 foot (18m) high walls. Your tour views the elaborate frescoes and visits the Christodoulos chapel. The monastery's old Treasury is today a museum displaying a stunning collection of jeweled chalices, crowns, crucifixes, vestments and manuscripts.

Chora - Stroll the narrowed cobbled lanes of Patmos' main settlement, which lies at the foot of the monastery. Enjoy approximately 30-minutes to explore or browse among the many boutiques, shops and see the sail-driven windmills. Stroll the narrow lanes lined with whitewashed houses. Do not forget to taste ouzo or wine accompanied by mezedes of bread, cucumbers, olives, tzatziki and stuffed vine leaves.


Transfer via ship's tender to Scala, a traditional fishing village with gaily-painted boasts lining its quays. Board your private vehicle and travel inland, crossing rolling, barren hills to the island's apex, where you enjoy panoramic views of the countryside and bay.
