Tour of Ancient Delos
This island is very close to Mykonos, and is one of the most important historical, archaeological, and mythological sites. It is said to be the birthplace of the gods Artemis and Apollo, so it is not surprising that the island has become so famous. Delos has extensive ancient ruins that you can explore, so be sure to set up a tour!
Escape the hoards of tourists and embark on a 4-hour tour of Mykonos. You will learn about the island's rich history and experience Grecian culture firsthand. An experienced tour guide will show you authentic Mykonian culture by taking you to various locations including the port of St. Ioannis, a traditional vineyard, and an open-air market.
Food is one of the best ways to experience culture, so why not participate in a cooking class? Spend approximately six hours creating traditional recipes under the instruction of local culinary experts. You will learn how to make authentic Greek dishes, which you will enjoy for lunch or dinner. Of course wine is also involved!
This historical bakery is located in one of the oldest buildings on the island and has been in operation for *hundreds* of years. Amazingly, the bakery still uses a wood burning oven to bake their breads. This place is about as traditional as it gets.
