Part of the Cyclades, Mykonos has a nickname ‘The island of wind.’ It is famous for the huge windmills and a thriving nightlife. We felt the Mykonos was a little pricey. The must see place in Mykonos is ‘Little Venice’. Little balconies hanging over the shore with narrow pathway that connect the windmills to the bustling market is a pleasure to watch. There are various cafes and bars over the shore , along the path and is always crowded with people watching sunset.

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.
