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!
 

Some very nice images of Delos !

A humorous comment on TripAdvisor!

"It depends when you go but in August the traffic is horrendous. We stayed within walking distance of Mykonos town and have honestly never seen anything like it. From the airport and from the port traffic was gridlocked, the scooters whining round and beeping were constant, the injuries on people on the flight were numerous. Our hotel owner driving an extremely battered car thought it was hilarious when my husband (a police trained driver) was the front seat passenger and kept wincing at near misses, “braking” as if he were the driver and was relieved we made it to the hotel alive. No pavements, drink driving, horns, shouting,gesticulating, multiple people on the same scooter - it was mayhem. Early evening when all the poseurs came out was the worst. But that’s just our experience as parents trying to protect our children. I’ve no doubt other people free to zip around have a great time! It’s normal for Greece!

I think it is very funny😂😂😂, especially about the Hotelier,I know which one,it is not appropriate to mention this here....Can you all imagine I had to work in these challenging circumstances? day in day out every day through out July and August......I had to plan meticulously when the ships arrive, when the Ferries docked, Cruise Liners anchored! ⚓ and came ashore, unbelievable congestion,.....I know all the short cuts and back streets, chasing in and out of lanes like a rally driver.... because my time was very precious as I had many responsibilities.....from 11am to 3 pm it is mayhem... oh how I wish I could work there all over again❤️❤️🇬🇷..... Then we have horrendous motor bike accidents, especially with the Italians who just came to Party and get drunk all day every day......all good fun!🇬🇷..

Did you know that Mykonos has a castle that you can visit?

Just look at how beautiful this castle is on google earth. The castle is built on top of a beautiful small mountain. It is currently in ruins but still a great part of history. The castle was abandoned when the Ottoman Empire took over in the 14th century.

Mykonos live Webcam.... Enjoy!❤️

Just behind the windmills is where I parked my car every morning before walking down the hill to Little Venice to the Delos Port!❤️❤️

The Greeks and their seas!♥️

This has taken a very long time to find it.... Hope you all enjoy!
