Destinations > Cyclades Islands > Mykonos

      It's the tourist Mecca of Greece. Myconos is bright and breezy with fine sandy beaches by day and by night the hum of the bars and throb of discos into the wee hours is all part of the scene. It is the island where locals and plain ordinary holidaymakers rub shoulders with the yacht set, jet set, artists and celebrities from all over the world. The houses, the churches and the narrow winding alleys appear to be a naturally evolved form sculptured from the rocks of the island itself. The cosmopolitan flavour of Myconos may be a refreshing contrast to the simpler pleasures of other. One of the most famous spots is Venetia (Little Venice - below), named after tha famous Italian city, because it's build on the water, with the waves crashing on the house walls.
