Arguably the best known of all the Greek islands, Mykonos is renowned today for its nightlife, lively beaches, charming narrow streets, white houses and churches. Both the lifestyle and history of the island are showcased during this walking tour. You’ll visit the Mykonos Archaeological Museum, which houses pottery from Delos, grave statues, stelae and jewelry from the island of Renia and the Delos necropolis. Among the museum's highlights is an exhibit of a pithos, or Minoan storage jug which features a Trojan War scene in relief and a statue of Hercules.
Continue your walk with an exploration of the Mykonos that tourists seldom see, and discover her mysteries amid narrow winding streets lined with whitewashed houses, signature blue trim and walled gardens. Discover the town's deliberately confusing layout, designed to fool attacking pirates. The nearby windmills, an island trademark, once ground wheat that was used to bake bread. Now they stand as symbols of the island and afford a wonderful photo opportunity. Finally, do as the Mykonians and enjoy a refreshment of ouzo with some traditional mezedes before returning to your ship.
