Mykonos Luxury Holidays: An Overview

Cosmopolitan Mykonos is renowned for its nightlife (it has been described as the Ibiza of the Aegean, but the jury is out as to whether that's a good thing or not), trademark windmills and its attractive 'capital' Hora, considered one of the most beautiful towns in the Cyclades.

Hora boasts the photogenic 'Little Venice' area, where the buildings overhang the sea, superb shopping, and restaurants ranging from chic sushi bars to cosy tavernas.

Day Trip to Delos

Take a boat from Mykonos to see the World heritage site of Delos, one of the most important mythological and archaeological sites in Greece. The birthplace of Apollo - god of the sun - and the Artemis - goddess of hunting - the island is considered the most sacred of all the islands. Legend has it that no mortal was allowed to be born or die here (but fortunately visiting is okay).

Stroll around Mykonos

Wander along winding alleys and duck down narrow marble streets, admiring the traditional whitewashed houses with their colourful doors and window frames. See the 17th century Paraportiani Orthodox Church that overlooks the Aegean Sea and keep your fingers crossed for an encounter with the famous Petros the Pelican, the local mascot. Mikri Venetia, or Little Venice, a picturesque bay, is the best place to soak up that picture-perfect sunsets.
