Mykonos


MYKONOS

Mykonos together with the smaller island of Delos make up a single island complex. Mykonos is situtated 94 nautical miles south east of Piraeus and spans over an area of 85sq.km. The island can be reached by air from Athens, Thessalonica and Santorini, or by ferry directly from Piraeus or Rafina. The trip by ferry takes about 5-6 hours although someone can use the Catamarans (fast boats), which take half the time of the ferries.

Mykonos is one of the most popular tourist islands both in the Mediterranean and worldwide since visitors from all over the world- some of whom famous jet setters and celebrities, travel here since 1960's. Narrow, winding, traditionally paved alleys, beautiful whitewashed houses with blue windows together with gold sanded beaches with crystal clear waters characterize Mykonos.

DELOS
Delos counts itself amongst those places that receive the most intensive sunlight on our planet, and it is also the island, according to Greek mythology, where Apollo and Artemis were born. From 166 B.C Delos developed with just a few decades into a flourishing Greek trade center possessing a rich city full of palaces, temples, and statues. In 1872 archaeological excavations started and countless artifacts have been uncovered; recovery work that is still going on. Excursions from Mykonos directly to Delos can be made by boat.

HORA
Hora, the island's capital, has a maze of streets, constructed originally to confuse attacking pirates, and filled with every imaginable shop, tourist shops, discos, bars, hotels, restaurants, tavernas, etc. It is perhaps the finest of the white island towns in Greece and rises amphitheatrically behind the quay, with windmills on the hill above-the round, white Cycladean windmills, with thatched roofs and sails like those of a boat.

ANO MERA
Ano Mera is after Hora, the most important village on the island, standing 8 km. East of the town, Ano Mera has the interesting Monastery of Panagia Tourliani, build in the 16th century, with fine wood carvings and gold leaf painted icons. The church has a collection of valuable ecclesiastical vessels vestments and embroideries used by the priests. The courtyard contains an interesting bell-tower and a marble fountain. In Ano Mera lovers of the sea will find out standing golden beaches like Elia, Lia and Kalo Livadi.
