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 :)

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

Mykonos has had its Champagne fuelled Tourism

Truthfull to the point, saturation beyond belief, this was happening 20 years ago,my friends who have a travel agency told me'Hash if you want the remember your Mykonos don't come back, keep those memories'thats how much they are fed up with their lives there when it takes 30 minutes just to get somewhere instead of 5 minutes!...It has taken me a very long time to recover missing my Mykonos for it gave me a new life which I didn't have previously..... here is our lovely home for many years which doesn't exist as there is a villa built there now!....

Did you know that Mykonos has its own historical library?

Many people wouldn't think to visit a library on their vacation, but I do suggest stopping by just to check it out. Besides being a party town, Mykonos has so many beautiful aspects of Greek culture that shouldn't be missed out on. In the library, you'll be able to see many different books outlining the history and culture of Greece. The library is a historical municipal library, meaning that their books focus on preserving the history of Greece. The address to the library is Kampani 2, Mikonos (Kampani Mansion, Ag. Kyriaki Square, 846 00, Greece

Mykonos Bar Taken To Court By American Tourists For Charging €600 For Two Drinks And A Meze !

Sadly nothing directly will happen to this place..... and no-one has the power to shut them down......yes they will be fined...so what?....There are countless negative reviews on Tripadvisor which I have already posted.....the way I have understood this is that they believe this is media exposure to enhance further business....I have lived and worked in Tourism Industry in various parts and I must say this is spectacularly show biz style negative PR ..... ripping off Travellers is not new in Mykonos.....I will ask my friends who are born and live there what the motives are behind this to allow this situation get out of control....
