Mykonos

Mykonos is famed as a cosmopolitan destination among the Greek islands and widely recognized as one of the great travel meccas. In Greek mythology, the Mykonos was named after its first ruler, Mykonos, the son or grandson of the god Apollo and a local hero. The island is also said to have been the location of a great battle between Zeus and Titans and where Hercules killed the invincible giants having lured them from the protection of Mount Olympus.

Mykonos Town (Chora) is a stunningly picturesque Cycladic town with a maze of tiny streets and whitewashed steps lanes, houses and churches, gathered around its harbor in the middle of a wide bay. It is one of the most cosmopolitan and crowded towns of the Aegean. The streets are lined with little shops, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, stylish bars and restaurants.
