The Historic Side of Mykonos to Explore
Mykonos is renowned for its spectacular beach parties, beautiful weather, and great beaches. If you visit during peak party season, July and August, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy the best of Mykonos’ nightlife, but don’t overlook the other intriguing sites to see and activities to do — this portion of the Cycladic islands has a lot more to offer.
An Excursion to Delos Is Great Idea For All
The historical site of Delos is a must-see for anyone interested in history, archeology, or knowing more about beautiful Greek mythology and myths. You may take a daily guided boat excursion from Chora; the travel takes approximately 30-45 minutes, so it’s a good day trip because it’s not as far as some other islands. The prices are reasonable, and children can obtain a cheap ticket, so it can be a fun family outing.
For travelers of all ages, a day excursion to the adjacent island of Delos might be an entertaining option. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Cyclades’ political and religious hubs. According to Greek mythology, this is where Apollo (the god of light and music) and Artemis (the goddess of hunting) were born.
Adults pay €20 for a return ticket, while children aged 6 to 12 pay €10. If you’re not familiar with Greek mythology, a guided tour may be a more intriguing choice, as you’ll discover more about the island’s rich past.
Church of Panagia Paraportiani Always Mesmerises Travelers
The Church of Panagia Paraportiani Will Astound You Located in the Kastro area, on the foothills of lovely Chora, the church of Panagia Paraportiani is one of the most magnificent churches in the city. It’s classic Greek scenery, with its asymmetrical lines, white walls, and blue water in the background. It was constructed between the 15th and 17th centuries and consists of five churches, four of which are located beneath the main one, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Panagia in Greek).
The Rich History of Ano Mera
Ano Mera Village is centered on a huge plaza with many comfortable cafes and recognizable whitewashed cottages with blue windows, and it is located in the centre of the island. Away from the crowds, you may have a relaxed day with your friends and family while learning more about Greek culture and holy monuments.
Near the city center, you can visit the Monastery of Panagia Tourliani. This monastery complex with a church of The Virgin and a marble belfry with elaborately decorated water spigot is definitely one of the spots you shouldn’t miss. If you go half a mile further to the southeast, you can also visit what’s left of the 18th-century Monastery of Paleokastro.
