Day 1

place Arrival Day

Upon arriving at Athens International Airport and after picking up your luggage, you will exit to the Arrivals Hall. A member of our staff, will meet you at the arrivals hall to welcome you and assist you with proceeding to the domestic airport section for your flight to Mykonos island. Welcome to Athens! Fly to Mykonos Island Pick up from Mykonos Airport and transfer to your hotel The tiny Cycladic island of Mykonos sprung to blossom as a tourist destination in the 60s and 70s, when it was first discovered by global glitterati and became featured in magazines as the new hot place to be for the "it" crowd. The island today has kept little of its past exclusivity (although celebrities do make appearances at some of its fashion boutiques every now and then), and welcomes diverse crowds every summer season. July and August are the busiest, with late spring and early fall allowing visitors to discover a quieter, more tranquil side to the island. During high season, avoid the narrow streets of Mykonos Town (also referred to as "Hora", or "Chora") during daytime to escape cruise ship crowds and venture out to one of the island's many beaches, or try scuba diving under careful supervision of professionals from the island's many dive centers. The island, along with its tiny neighbor of Delos, featured prominently in Greek mythology and was first settled in 11th century BC. Excursions into the past may be made via the island's several tiny museums and the well-maintained Archaeological Site of Delos. Free Afternoon - Evening in Mykonos If you have heard of one Greek island, we are sure that is the island of Mykonos. Mykonos, is one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan islands in the world, located in the heart of the Cyclades islands. Due to the large number of beaches and the sense of relaxation it offers, Mykonos is an amazing choice for a summer holiday.
