I'm planning a trip to Mykonos and I'm particularly interested in exploring its ancient ruins. I’ve heard that the island has a rich history, and I’d love to include some historical sites in my itinerary. Could anyone recommend the best ancient ruins to visit in Mykonos? Here are a few specifics I’m hoping to learn more about:
  1. Top Ruins to Visit: Which ruins are considered must-sees on the island? Are there any that stand out due to their historical significance or state of preservation?
  2. Visitor Information: Are there any tips for visiting these sites, such as best times to go, entry fees, or guided tour options?
  3. Historical Context: I’d appreciate any background information or interesting historical facts about the ruins. Understanding the history behind the sites would make the visits even more enriching.
  4. Accessibility: Are the ruins easily accessible for travelers, or are there any challenges in reaching them (e.g., remote locations, rugged terrain)?
  5. Personal Experiences: If anyone has personal experiences or photos from their visits to these ancient ruins, I’d love to hear about them!
 

Nightlife question about Mykonos

I have seen footage of fun-looking club atmospheres on Mykonos. I went last year and couldn't find those parties! I want to try again the next time I am in Greece, probably in September.

I’d love to find places that strike a balance between great music (preferably a mix of international and local beats), a lively but not overly crowded atmosphere, and of course, stunning settings that scream ‘Mykonos’!

Does anyone have personal favorites or hidden gems they'd be willing to share?

Question about Mykonos galleries

I'm planning a trip to the enchanting island of Mykonos very soon and, being an avid admirer of art, I'm eager to explore the local art scene. Mykonos, with its mesmerizing landscapes and vibrant culture, is said to host some exceptional galleries. I'm reaching out to this knowledgeable community for personal recommendations on the best galleries to visit during my stay.

I have a deep appreciation for both contemporary pieces and classical art, so any suggestions that cover a wide range of artistic expressions would be hugely appreciated. Additionally, if there are specific artists or exhibitions that you think are a must-see, I would love to hear about those as well.

Lastly, if there are any hidden gems or lesser-known galleries that you've stumbled upon and found to be utterly captivating, please do share! I'm all for discovering off-the-beaten-path spots that add a unique touch to the travel experience.

Learning Greek While in Mykonos?

I've recently embarked on the exciting journey of learning Greek, motivated further by an upcoming trip to the beautiful island of Mykonos.
