Mykonos is perhaps the most famous of all the Greek islands, renowned today for its nightlife and beautiful beaches. Mykonos had substantial influence during the Greek War of Independence, before it was re-discovered as a picturesque location for filming.
From the port of Tourlos, you will set out on a panoramic drive past the quaint villages of Ioannis, Ornos and Kalafatis.
Continue to Ano Mera -- perhaps the most traditional of the island's villages. Here you will see the Monastery of Panagia Tourliani from the outside. It is dedicated to the protector of Mykonos and was founded in 1580. However, the building you see today dates back only as far as the 18th century.
At the main square of Ano Mera, enjoy a taste of ouzo -- the local licorice-flavored liqueur -- and a mezedes snack of Greek specialties.
Return to the port afterwards.
The Ano Mera Monastery is viewed from the outside only; there is no inside visit.
