I won't be going this year, but I am starting to plan for next year. I plan to be in a Greece for at least a month and someone I am traveling with is adamant about wanting to experience some clubs in Mykonos.
I think it does look fun, but I am concerned with whether or not it is expensive. I heard it can get bad. We have a limited budget... can we navigate the expense of it, and find less expensive ways to enjoy it. Can we?
While on Mykonos, are there places to go, or maybe even tours to take, that can help me learn abut the history of the place?
I know there are some museums, like the Archaeological Museum and the Folklore Museum, but aside from that, I am looking for places to go that will kind of bring the history alive. I do plan to visit Delos as a day trip, I know the history of that small island is connected to Mykonos. That's all I can think of, though. Anything you can tell me is very much appreciated!
I haven't read anywhere as accurate and superbly presented article of Mykonos as this one!......I love the bit which reads "It was, however during these times a rather poor island with limited agricultural resources ".... only now it is the most priciest rock in the world!..... costing upwards€25,000 per sq metre.....and as far as I know from a few years back....the requirements to build a house was 4000 sq metres!.....and business development over 10,000 Sq metres..... Enjoy reading this...
I used a lot of information on my Guided Island Tours of Mykonos...so the history and facts are accurate!A pleasure to post this for readers to enjoy having lived and worked in Tourism Industry for many years!Saga poh Mykonou mu!
Events unfolding rapidly in crackdowns after many years of irregular activities.I don't agree with the Police patrolling the narrow streets of Mykonos for noise levels from the bars in the video which I saw yesterday, felt quite saddened when at this time of the year it is so very nice to browse around Matoyianni with all the lovely shops and boutiques instead of 6-8 police walking up and down these beautiful narrow streets!... They begin to take away sound systems from the bars!
