Ask most tourists who visited Delos and a number would not have encountered this place! Why? Because they turn back before they reach this place. Yet, this place should not be missed! The mosaics of this place is amazing! One gets an idea of how culturally and artistically advanced they were in those times. These mosaics are not only beautiful,... More

The House of Masks seems to be missed by most people who use a tour guide on the island. We made our way up here past the tour groups and almost had it to ourselves despite the fact that there were hundreds of people on the island. The House of Masks is so named because some of the masks have... More

Not only is the flooring and design impressive but this building had indoor plumbing. An amazing accomplishment.

Just beyond the theatre, this is one of a group of ruined mansions in Delos. It is worth seeking out to see the ancient mosaics.

The house of masks offers famous mosaics like Dionisos on a leopard and is at the southern edge of the ruins near mount kynthos opposite the house of the dolfins in the Theater area.

Many tours go no further than the theater, but this is just beyond the theater. You can pass it and not realize you missed it. Get a good map. Some of the best mosaics are here.

The house is very impressive, with the ancient masks still being where they have been for thousands of years. There is a fence around the house so that you cannot actually enter the house. You get a good impression of it though, and you can take some good pictures.

The fresco type floor at this site says it all - a true work of art, in one of the larger house at the site bespeaking of a lifestyle that has long passed and whose splendor which we can only imagine.

When you enter this house and see the gorgeous flooring still intact, it is just stunning. Of course, then everyone in your group is focussed on getting good photos of the mosaic, which is really too large to get a good photo of, and I am guilty of that myself. But to just stand and take it in, to think... More

This place is beautiful. The ruins are amazing, the amount of preservation is stunning. The boat trip is nice but unfortunately you have to stop over at mykonos for a few hours. It's also quite expensive for what it is, but it's well worth a look. On the first boat which starts out from Paros, don't stand on the top... More
