Archaeological Site of Delos

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island of Delos is an important sacred site for the ancient Greeks, and therefore, a must-visit for history and archaeology enthusiasts. It holds some curios remains of ancient civilisations: a former amphitheatre, historic houses with mosaics, temples, and the famous Terrace of the Lions. Don't skip the museum–it contains some artefacts dating as far back as the 25th century BC.

Do & See

The entire island of Mykonos is only 15km at its widest point–a small but intimate place, where it's possible to see everything in a relatively short period of time. Start off by strolling through Little Venice, the waterfront bar and restaurant strip of Mykonos Town, and make your way up into the maze of narrow streets dotted with shops and eateries. Take a photo against the backdrop of the island's iconic windmills, and of course, make the most of its many splendid beaches.
