As I mentioned in this post, Mykonos was a replacement port for Naples. Initially we were quite disappointed as we were desperate to visit Capri, but as there wasn’t anything we could do, we just went with the flow and looked forward to our day in Mykonos.
The berth is a few miles from the town, so we hopped on a shuttle bus which dropped us off at the marina.
It was another bright and beautiful day with azure skies and aquamarine water.
From there we walked along the water’s edge to the quaint cobbled streets, lined with picture perfect white restaurants, shops and churches.
Much like Santorini, everywhere you looked there was something gorgeous to feast your eyes upon. Unlike the parts of Santorini we visited, we were much closer to the sea, which made my heart sing!
It just so happens, that Mykonos is absolutely beautiful! We would very happily spend a week in Santorini and a week in Mykonos; together they would be our perfect Greek holiday.
There was another cruise ship in, yet somehow the island didn’t feel too busy, and we even managed to find some pretty little lanes where we were the only tourists.
Like a moth to a flame, wherever there is local produce for sale, I will find it!
After a spot of shopping in Little Venice (I bought some lovely locally handmade scarves) we headed to the famous windmills
With grumbling tummies we went back to Little Venice and we miraculously snapped up a teeny tiny table in a waterfront bar with stunning views.
We were gently splashed a few times (actually quite welcome in the heat!), but nothing compared to these people further down!
We could have sat there sipping Aperol spritzes and gazing dreamily out at the view all day and quite possibly all night, but it was time to go back to the ship.
Not without passing some beautiful doors first.
