Itinerary: 7 days Greek Islands – Cyclades (from Mykonos)
The most famous islands of Greece invite you to discover the reasons why they have been leading world travel destinations for years. The duration of travel between islands is estimated approximately on an average speed of the boat.
1st DAY (Saturday): MYKONOS-DELOS-RINIA
MYKONOS (One of the most popular and favorite destinations in Greece and around the world)
The most famous island of the Aegean with Santorini. Bright and cosmopolitan, it has been a magnet since 1960 to the present day VIPs of the whole planet. Mythical names of the international jet set were connected with Mykonos.
It is voted in the top places of the best holiday destinations: excellent beaches, award-winning restaurants, the best of the Mediterranean, with many distinctions and awards, endless mythical parties that do not stop all summer, expensive yachts, dream villas, five-star beach service.
Mykonos will tease you. But above all, it will release you. Here you will be transformed, you will be left… and you will feel uncomfortable in love with life. Spinning all-white against the background of the blue of the Aegean. Particularly open to diversity, the Mykonians welcomed the gay community and Mykonos became the most gay-friendly destination in Greece and the most popular in the world.
The most famous country in the Aegean. In the photographed Little Venice, the houses built in the 18th century have foundations in the sea. Today they host bars and restaurants and from their balconies, the glow of the Aegean is blinding.
The other trademark of Mykonos, Kato Myloi, grated the grains with the power of the north until the beginning of the 20th century. Today, they gaze at the sea illuminated in the evenings.
Holidays in Mykonos means fun: lunch and dinner, improvised or organized parties, famous DJs from around the world!
Stunning beach, cocktails in the boat overlooking the illuminated Mills, champagne, dance and flirting until the night.
See what Mykonos has for you. The scuba diving presents a different world and recommends you to selected “local Mykonians”, such as octopuses, starfish, snorkels, sponges or Monachus-Monachus seals! You will find many diving centers, which offer diving in reefs, caves, shipwrecks or mysterious night dives. Mykonos will tease you.
It is necessary to sail the boat to nearby Delos to admire the remnants of the past and history. Delos is the island of Apollo, the god of light. So, in the evening as the archaeological site closes and you start the way back, enjoy the unique sunset…
