There is not much that can be said about Mykonos that hasn’t already been said. It is the island of islands, the jewel of the Aegean, the St. Tropez of Greece, the place where everybody wants to be.
Cosmopolitan feel, typical Cycladic architecture, great beaches, fantastic nightlife, great food, unparalleled shopping opportunities and the excellent level of service has made this island a must, for all the visitors of Greece.
Mykonos can be reached by direct flights from many European cities, such as London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Frankfurt, Brussels to mention a few and can be used as an excellent base for visiting all the neighbouring islands for which there are frequent connections. Furthermore, Delos, one of the most spectacular archaeological sites of Greece is only 30min away by boat.
Just 2 hours by speed boat (five hours by ferry) or a short 40min flight away from Athens lies Mykonos.
The name was taken from the grandson of Apollo (God of light) named Mykonos, who married the niece of Dionysus (God of Fun) named Ryo.
How fortuitous could it be that these deities could be so early on describe what would represent present-day Mykonos … an island filled with Light and Fun!
