Mykonos: The most famous and popular of the Greek Cyclades Islands

Mykonos is the most famous and popular of the Greek Cyclades Islands, welcoming nearly one million vacationers every year.

Many, who think of Mykonos, automatically think of its reputation as a party island, but this beautiful destination holds many other treats that render it an ideal stopover during your Mediterranean cruise vacation.

Step off your MSC cruise ship and enter a world of color, where the azure crystal sea competes with the deep blue skies. The island’s fishing industry is kept alive in the colourful waterfront cottages, painted in different shades to help fishermen identify their homes from the sea.

Mykonos is an island rich in natural beauty and history, yet is cosmopolitan in character.
We will help you make the most of your time off the ship with our comprehensive list of excursions and some great deals on local sights.

You can discover Mykonos Town - also called ‘Hora’ - on foot; indeed the whole of Mykonos island is relatively small and thus easy to explore. Hora is considered one of the most beautiful towns on the island due to its archetypal island-postcard image. There are many excellent places to sunbathe and swim, whilst couples and honeymooners will enjoy finding the most romantic spot amidst all the idyllic scenery!

One of the best days out is found a short island-hop away in Delos, which is steeped in ancient history and legend.

 MYK05 - MYKONOS UNCOVERED (approx. 4 hours) - 2014
Difficulty level: moderate - May involve inclines, steps, uneven surfaces and/or extended periods of standing  Panoramic tour  Limited seat  Snack included  Cultural  Venture out and uncover the many different facets of Mykonos island, the “St. Tropez of Greece”. Just how much the island has to offer is yours to discover on this relaxing and mainly coach-based tour, which begins with a drive to the so-called Panorama vantage point. A photo stop will give you a chance to capture beguiling views of Mykonos town and the old port, before a scenic route will take you through the picturesque villages of Agios Ioannis and Kalafatis as well as past the cosmopolitan beach of Ornos. A stop will be made at the heart of Mykonos to visit the island’s second-largest settlement, the village of Ano Mera, at whose centre stands the monastery and church of Panagia Tourliani. Probably founded at some time during the 16th century and then remodelled in 1767, the cloister is a major draw for travellers visiting the area. A generous helping of warm Greek hospitality then awaits you in a village taverna, giving you a chance to reflect on your day of Mykonian magic as you relax to the aniseed flavour of ouzo and the savoury goodness of typical Greek appetizers. More pleasing views can then be enjoyed during the return drive to the port and your ship. Please note: this tour is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair.

 MYK06 - DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF MYKONOS ON FOOT (approx. 2 hours) - 2014
Difficulty level: moderate - May involve inclines, steps, uneven surfaces and/or extended periods of standing  Panoramic tour  Limited seat  As one of the Cycladic Islands, Mykonos has enjoyed great popularity as a holiday destination since the 1950s, offering travellers traditional Greek hospitality plus a lively nightlife against a backdrop of stunning beaches, whitewashed houses and a scenic interior. Just what makes the island so appealing is revealed in the course of this leisurely walking tour, which is set to showcase the rarely seen corners of town, its hidden gems, narrow winding streets and secluded walled gardens. And if the layout of Mykonos town appears confusing, it is. Specifically designed that way to thwart pirate attacks, the town continues to flummox all but the locals to this day. A trademark feature of the island are its numerous windmills, redolent of a bygone age during which they ground the wheat that made the bread that fed the island. Standing squat, round and proud against the buffeting wind, these portly landmarks make a great photo opportunity. Your exploration of Mykonos then draws to a close with your return to the ship. Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair.

Price per person $46.00 Adults $32.00 Children
