Mykonos is perhaps the best-known and the most talked-about of all the Greek islands. Renowned today for its jet set, nightlife and wild beaches, Mykonos was once subject to the various occupations typical of Greek history. However, it made a substantial impact during the Greek War of Independence, after which the island settled into a quiet post-war existence. A new lease on life came with Mykonos' re-discovery as a beautiful location for filming. Actors, artists and movie stars have become the latest and greatest inhabitants.
Your walking tour through Mykonos town will showcase the lifestyle and the true history of this unique settlement.
Step inside the Maritime Museum and stroll through the narrow streets packed with whitewashed houses. You will come to appreciate the fact that this confusing layout was designed to foil attacking pirates.
In picture-perfect Little Venice, named for its striking resemblance to the famous canal city, the famous windmills of Mykonos offer a wonderful photo opportunity.
At the conclusion of your tour, go local and enjoy a taste of ouzo with traditional mezedes (snacks) before you head back to the ship.
Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
