Mykonos, luxury and night life

Mykonos
Greece

Mykonos is a very sophisticated yet popular holiday resort of the Aegean. Luxury cruise liners dock at its harbors, ferries arrive daily from Piraeus, Rafina, and Lavrion. Mykonos is the place to be if you are looking for bars, restaurants, quality beaches, food, music, precious jewelry, and nightlife.

Mykonos is a Cycladic island part of a complex of thirty-three inhabited islands forming an imaginary circle around Delos in the Aegean Sea. In the Cyclades, houses are chalk white and cubical and mostly built using materials found on the island. In Mykonos, this approach to architecture has produced a town that is itself a work of art, a maze of perfect, white-washed cubes that stand in dazzling contrast to the brilliant, blue sea. The two-story homes are decorated with wooden balconies, and distinctive drains and chimneys, and by ordinance, all homes must be painted white. Windows and perhaps a railing are painted red, blue, or green, but otherwise, everything is white except for garlands of fresh flowers carefully arranged on the wooden stairs.

Mykonos covers an area of twenty-three square miles and has a population of about 15,000 permanent residents. There are more than 500 churches on the island, many attached to private homes. The town itself is an actual maze and was deliberately built in this way to confuse pirates who came to rob and pillage. The maze, however, makes the town even more romantic and creates literal surprises around almost every corner.

The town is crowned by its huge, round windmills, which once were used to grind wheat. Now they are the island's most famous symbols and their paddles share the skyline with the churches' domes and crosses, creating dramatic contrasts to the cube-like homes hugging the ground. The windmills are located in the beautiful Alefkandra section of town known as "Little Venice."
