The History

 

Mykonos is an island that has witnessed millennia of diverse influences, including ancient Egyptian, Venetian in the 13th century and Turkish in the 16th century. Much more recently, it was a favored spot for artists and hippies during the 1960s. With its culturally rich background, there’s plenty to see for history buffs, from the ruins of the ancient sacred island of Delos just a boat ride away to the 400 uniquely beautiful Mykonian churches and monasteries.
