Milos is the southwesternmost island of the Cyclades Archipelago in the Aegean sea, in Greece.
Milos is called "the island of lovers" because the famous statue Venus de Milo (Aphrodite of Milos) the ancient Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty was discovered in the island in 1820, and because it is the vacation destination of thousands of young (as well as not so young) couples, or young lovers, each year. As the discovery site of the famous statue, Milos also justifiably claims the title "island of Venus".
Milos is sometimes also called the "island of colors", due to the fascinating color formations of its spectacular volcanic landscape.
Milos, the island of Lovers. Milos, the island of colors. Milos is for Lovers. We'll be going to Milos for our family vacation next June.
