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 .

Reached Patras after a night's journey. Via Taxi reached Patras bus stand where we booked tickets for Athens. Across coastline, it was a beautiful journey. And It was mathematics all around as P is written as π ; A as @, B as Beta β; it was fun to judge my secondary school knowledgeSpent 3 days in Athens and visited Acropolis, Parthenon, Syntagma Square, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Police station (as my friend lost his wallet and we had to lodge complaint). Europe (Greece, Turkey) with an Asian feeling starts as you sail across Mediterranean as I could see the street vendors culture selling spices etc. across Athens.
Diving and snorkeling to Tragonisi island cavern/cave system is one of the most popular dives. Tragonisi is a small rocky island, just a few meters east of the island of Mykonos. Everybody can admire a unique marine environment among the different chambers/tunnels. Yellow sea anemones are exclusively found in this area. Caverns diving is the exploration of permanent, naturally occurring overhead environments while remaining within sight of their entrances. Tragonisi is a protected nature reserve and a haven for the Monachus monachus seal. Diving at the “Seal Cave”is addressed to experienced divers and only upon request. Its a unique dive due to possibilities for a closer encounter with a Monachus monachus seal.
