This was the one ship excursion I decided on before we left home. Delos is the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis and the most extensively excavated site in Greece. All of the kids went with us, including 2 nephews and Dad and Evelyn.
Martina was very excited about seeing the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis but actually, we never saw a ‘birthplace.’ It was just the ruins on the island. Fascinating for me. Disappointing for the little one.
We left the ship and got onto a tender boat for the 45 minute ride to Delos. The ride was nice. Pulling up to the island was magic as we could see the excavations and they are extensive. I won’t bore you with details on what is there. If you’re going to Mykonos though, it’s worth the time to visit Delos if you enjoy archaeological sites.
This is where we ate supper on Mykonos. I did not get the name of the restaurant but yum!
Eli and Martina. Supper. Mykonos.
Mykonos is the playground of the rich, famous, young and beautiful. We didn’t see much besides the main part of town, the tourist area. It was lovely, however. There are tiny winding streets lined with businesses that cater to tourists but the people were kind and respectful. We were starving and finally settled on a beautiful little café with an owner who spoke decent English. (We are SO lucky.)
