At the village of Ano Mera, the most traditional place, you can also visit the monastery Panagia Tourliani built in the 16th century and then we will have enough free time for a stroll around the square. Next stop is Kalafatis beach to relax a little before going back to town. Explore Mykonos town, walk into the narrow cobblestone streets, passing by the traditional labyrinth of the old town.

Breakfast. Free day. We suggest you take an optional tour to the mystic island of Delos. Delos was an important commercial and religious port of Antiquity. Birthplace of Apollo god of music and poetry (associated with the Sun) and his twin sister Artemis goddess of hunting (associated with the Moon). Abandoned at the turn of our era, it was rediscovered at the end of the 19th century and its many well-preserved remains such as the mosaic houses or the terrace of the lions make it one of the most important archaeological sites in the Mediterranean. No other island on earth hosts so many monumental antiquities from the Archaic, the Classical, and the Hellenistic periods, the centuries of the great Greek art, on a territory used exclusively as an archaeological site. Delos is not a museum; Delos is not there to tell a story. Delos is history itself.

The settlement was destroyed by a huge eruption during the 17th century BC and buried under the volcanic ash, which preserved the whole city in perfect conditions so as to be referred often as “Prehistoric Pompei”. We will continue with Red Beach, known for the unique colour of the sand. We continue with Perivolos black sand beach one of the longest beaches in Cyclades and the best beach in Santorini.
