Light and colour on the Greek Islands
There are over two hundred islands divided into various groups that are dotted around Greece, just waiting to be visited. The most popular and accessible is probably the Cyclades island group and its largest island, Mykonos. If you'll be in Athens long enough to enjoy a short getaway, this island could be the perfect destination. Mykonos is a mixture of heavenly beaches, a good handful of hidden away coves and a city bathed in its own unique light. From the Church of Panagia Paraportiani to the Castro neighbourhood that looks down over the main town, this island is full of history. Mykonos city is also famous for its nightlife, which thrives in the maze-like streets down on the beachfront. There are regular flights from Athens, although it is cheaper to travel by ferry with frequent departures from the port of Piraeus.
