Mykonos is the perfect combination of the graphic Cyclades’ Island and the legendary nightlife. Located 3hours by ferry from Piraeus port, Mykonos is THE destination for luxury holidays, amazing beaches and awarded restaurants. 

The island attracts many celebrities every year and is commonly known as the jetsetter of the Cyclades. It is hard to think of Mykonos at the beginning of the past century, when it was a simple island, without electricity. In the 1950’s the biggest names such as Aristotle Onassis, Pierre Cardin, Maria Callas, Jackie O, Princess Soraya, Elizabeth Taylor… got interested in the island and contributed to its evolution. 

Mykonos is one of the most graphic islands of the Cyclades, with the beloved blue and white architecture, which extends from the little neighbourhoods to the island’s main town, Hora. There, you can wander in the dreamy alleyways and discover captain’s homes, old churches and wells. In Gialos, you can even meet Petros, the pelican who is the mascot of Mykonos and contemplate Agios Nikolaos of Kadenas, the Town Hall of 1780, the imposing Mavrou School and reach the Church of Panagia Paraportiani, a complex of five churches, finished during the 17th century.

Little Venice, a very famous spot near the Hora, is worth a visit. It is said that the homes, that are now restaurants and cafes-bars, were built during the 18th century, for pirates to keep their loot. During your drink or meal there, you will have a breath-taking view of the sea, from the balconies. 

Another symbol of Mykonos are the windmills, once used to grind grain into flour, today it is a beautiful attraction during the day and the night, when they are lit up. 

Except for the most known places, there are also some hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Witnessing Mykonos’ history, with one of our rental vehicles, you can visit the Gyzi Castle located on the hills of Paleokastro, the Myconian grave at Angelika, the Neolithic settlement at Ftelia, and of course some ruins. 

All around Mykonos, you’ll find four worth-visiting smallest islands: Delos, Rinia, Tragonisi and Ktapodia. A one-day trip to Delos will make you walk through the Greco-Roman statues and sanctuaries, a settlement dedicated to Apollo. All of them are full of tiny bays with crystal blue waters, perfect for sunbathing, swimming and discovering the Mediterranean Sea.

To light up your days, Mykonos has the Armenistis lighthouse, which is one of the most interesting attraction in the Cyclades. It is a chance to walk there and visit the Aegean Maritime Museum to see the old mechanism and it is a perfect spot on the island to watch the sunset. 

The Myconian lifestyle will fulfil all your expectations for the perfect Greek summer.
