Day 8: Leave for Mykonos which a short 2 hour ride from Santorini. Mykonos is all about gorgeous beaches so thats the only plan here! We explored the Agios Ioannis beach which was right in front of our hotel. In the evening, you can go to Mykonos town to see the famous windmills and walk along Little Venice. Have dinner at the Mykonos waterfront or one of the restaurants situated inside its pretty alleys.
Best Time To Visit
Best time to visit Mykonos is from April to September
How To Reach
Book a Package Tour
Another tour one can do from Mykonos is to an uninhabited island called Delos half an hour sail away. Delos is the birthplace of Goddess Athena's twins - the two most important and ancient Greek gods -Apollo (the sun god) and Artemis (the moon goddess).On reaching the island you can tour the ruins of the entire city - the ancient homes, guest quarters, public places, markets and temples- all very well planned. Even more amazing is their water harvesting system which would work even in the present day and age! There is also a museum which can be visited to see the exhibits from all the historical periods represented on the island. The excavations are still in progress and it is a UNESCO heritage site .
Voula's Little Venice
It’s really called Little Venice! Little Venice is one of the most romantic places in the whole of Mykonos. This neighborhood is replete with elegant and gorgeous old houses that are situated precariously on the edge of the sea. Quite amazing are the sunset views from Little Venice. Its whitewashed edifices against the backdrop of the azure blue Aegean Sea is simply marvelous. The air of nonchalance that prevails in Little Venice disarms the most discerning of travelers.
