One of the most beautiful spots of the Aegean is definitely the island of Mykonos, an integral part of the Cyclades as well as a popular tourist destination for many travellers. Among the main features adding charm to this heavenly place, a special place is surely taken by its mythological history, connected to ancient times and timeless books like the Iliad and the Odyssey.
It is said that just on this island a bloody battle between Zeus and a giant took place in past ages. Mykonos has a history marked by a series of occupations by different peoples that have enriched and changed it over the centuries, making it special and extremely interesting.
Mykonos' nickname is "the island of the winds". Despite its famous and romantic windmills behind the numerous and beautiful beaches, Mykonos is definitely the most commercial and modern Greece’s island. The summer season begins around Easter, a holiday destination par excellence for who enjoy the fun and the luxury life.
Numerous boutiques, bars and clubs light up the night on the island. Even the narrow streets of the city are transformed into a huge disco crowded with young open until dawn. The island has been since the Greco-Roman period a cosmopolitan place, with great tourism and trade, but it has also managed to keep intact the charm of yesteryear: nobody could resist the emotion of a stroll along the little white houses built by ancient pirates, including squares, churches and chapels, including markets, public buildings, temples and the ancient columns. Here you can find your own holiday paradise.
Both loving couples, wishing to enjoy breath-taking and romantic walks at sunset, families who can admire a place rich in history and young people in search of entertainment and nightlife will have a great chance for a unique holiday in the sun and in the nature.
