I was very excited about our journey to Mykonos that begun from Athens the next morning. Our mode of transport was a ferry via sea route. We waited for some time before our ferry arrived. To my surprise it was gigantic. By ferry, we usually visualize a large motor boat but here this was comparable to a ship. This certainly was going to be one of the most adventurous journey of my life. We were lucky to get a comfortable spot near a large window in the ship. The outside sea was right here just beneath us with its striking blue water on which the rays of the sun were spread like diamonds.

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.
Why not try a night diving in Mykonos and experience a different kind of nightlife.During a night dive you can discover a different side of this world and you can experience it from a completely different view.It is an unbelievable feeling to discover the mysteries held underwater when the sun goes down.The diver can experience a different underwater environment at night diving, because many marine animals are nocturnal.You’ll find that there’s nothing to worry about and that night diving is usually much more relaxing than diving during the day.
