Chased by the jealous goddess Hera, Leto
wandered from place to place looking for some
corner of the earth in which to give birth to
her son, fruit of the union with Zeus.
Every city and island refused to receive her and

to refuse to obey.
There she gave birth to Apollo and the island
glowed like burnished gold and became Delos (the
From the 17th century an increasing number of
European travelers visited Delos, sketching its
ruins and recording precious information. In
1873 the French Archaeological School at Athens
began the excavations that continue to this day,
uncovering a large sector of the once large and
affluent city with sanctuaries, harbors, market
places and residential quarters.
There are daily excursions from Mykonos Town. A must for all visitors.
Mykonos is a popular tourist destination in the
Greek islands of the Cyclades group, situated in
the middle of the Aegean Sea.
Mykonos Town (Chora) is a stunningly picturesque
Cycladic town with a maze of tiny streets and
whitewashed steps lanes, houses and churches,
gathered around its harbor in the middle of a
wide bay. It is famed as a cosmopolitan
destination amongst the Greek islands and widely
recognized as one of the great travel Mecca's.
Although the streets are lined with little
shops, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, stylish
bars and restaurants, Mykonos Town has not
completely lost its identity. Despite the
island’s rapid growth and development, it’s
traditional Cycladic architectural style and
character has remained firmly intact, thanks to
the island’s strict building regulations.
Mykonos tends to be extremely crowded with
visitors in July and August. The best time to
visit Mykonos is May through June, or September

-Little Venice, a
district located at the sea, famous for its
picturesque medieval two and three storey

of all the churches on Mykonos, the most
impressive is Panagia Paraportianí, a true
Byzantine jewel. This whitewashed church, which
building dates back to 1425 and was not
completed until the 17th century, is the most
popular and most photographed of all the
churches on Mykonos.
-Petros the Pelican,
the island's mascot, can sometimes be found at
the waterfront or even up in town. Now there are
three pelicans inhabiting the island. This means
that the Petros you meet, can be a Petra. Well,
this is Mykonos.
