It is said the be the jewel of the Aegean, and Mykonos is one of the most visited islands in the area. Elizabeth takes a relaxing stroll around Mykonos which is just what you might do if not on a cruise. The first thing you might see as you approach are the windmills which it is famous for. A popular island for the rise and famous and fellow cruisers, it is also known as a gay friendly island and has a full on night life. It is likely to be on your Aegean cruise itinerary but it is unlikely they will let you stay there overnight.
As always, take a look at the tours in the Get Your Guide box because that will show you what there is on the island. It has a population of around 10,000 people in 85 square kilometres. It is known to have been inhabited back as far as 11th century BC and was occupied by the Romans. You can have some fun with the history because you are in the territory that stands between myths and religion and much has to have some substance somewhere. In Greek mythology, Mykonos was named after its first ruler, Mykons, the son or grandson of the god Apollo and a local hero. Mykonos is also said to have been the location of the battle between Zeus and Titans and where Hercules killed the invincible giants having lured them from the protection of Mount Olympus.

READ THE CRUISE BEFORE YOU CRUISE THE SEA. In the book charts, SOLO CRUISER BOOK SERIES. Violet Becket has never cruised. In fact, she has been nowhere in a long time. Too long. Book 1, Virgin Voyage has been in the book charts for some weeks now.
Violet has never had romance, never ever. As an older woman time is running out and she needs to make a change. This romantic read is based around cruises because once she cruises she loves it. That is her romance, well, there is a little more. Sally Katz used the films on Doris Visits to peg her books on! With permission. Each is a good read but there has yet to be a book based in this region, even though each book takes place on a cruise! Book 1 is a Canary Islands cruise, Book 2 is in the Baltic, Book 3 is in the Caribbean, and Book 4 goes from the ABC islands through the Panama Canal.
