Are you searching for true bliss this summer?
Trafalgar Tours details how Mykonos is an island favorite for many travelers in Greece because of its deep history, sensational food and amazing beaches.
Legend has it that Hercules helped form the island of Mykonos from the giants he had slain. Additionally, there are many historical landmarks from ancient Greek and Roman times to see.
This includes many of the long-standing churches and monasteries, such as the Church of Paraportiani and the Monastery of Paleokastro, as well as the gorgeous sightseeing from the Armenistis Lighthouse.
But if history isn’t your thing and you just want the beach, Mykonos has you covered. Kalafatis beach will take your breath away with its stunning views of the Aegean Sea.
