This is so amazing! I have not been to Mykonos in many years, after seeing this it just makes me miss Mykonos and Greece!

Here are some Mykonos travel guides that might help if you are looking to plan a trip:

This is Ano Mera,my village square for many years as I lived 2 kilometres from there....It is not always like this with Donkeys in the square...!!..... This video is taken for a group tour in 2019..... But still a rural village feeling especially behind the Square and the fields with some sheep, goats and Donkeys... few chickens flying around chasing hens...😂 😂.....The Monastery is a must visit..... just to light a candle and pay respect and be silent for a few minutes.... Insightfully blissful.❤️🇬🇷🇬🇷

Life in the villages is certainly different than the cities. That is one thing that struck me during my time in Greece. Village life is a lot simpler, it seems.

Ano Mera was my village square for many years as I lived 2 kilometres from there,I practically lived in the square,my friends have Tavernas there,it was never like what is showing in the Video.Donkeys are not allowed in the square..... Now having said that,if one takes a walk behind the Square towards the cemetery one could find a Gaidoro grazing or nearby in the fields, Greek village in Mykonos is really felt in the winter months when no travellers are around,I have spent many winters and I can assure you it was the best time of my life!.. Kalley Mera!

Beautiful, I would love to visit this winter and to get some really good deals on flights and accommodations. Most people don't know that Greece is equally as beautiful and charming in the winter :)

Most certainly....I used to go to Creta on the Majestic Haroula which used to sail from Thessaloniki to Herakleion, stopping in Mykonos....I sailed 3 or 4 departures before the end of the season in late October/November so I could have a rest after a tiring season In Mykonos,it was magical,all Creta to myself in Red VW cabriolet..I will post a picture later on.....

Must have been pretty cold to sail like that in the winter!
 

Should I Go to Mykonos Next Time I Visit Greece?

It's been a while since I have been to Mykonos and I am trying to figure out if I should add a few days next time I am in Greece...

Pros:

I like lively beaches with nightlife

Cons:

It's expensive
I don't really know anyone living on the island

I guess it looks like I need to decide if the nightlife is worth it. I mean, there's nightlife all over Greece so I am not sure it makes sense to go out of my way... What do you guys think?
