definitely at the most famous, thanks to its treasure of natural beauty, rich history, and plenty of local color (white & blue). Mykonos took its name from the son of the King of Delos. In the Greek mythology, Mykonos history is linked with the myth of Hercules, fighting against the Giants. The hero killed the last giants and threw them on the island where they petrified and formed some huge rocks.
Mykonos, already inhabited since the 5th millennium B.C. (prehistoric settlement of Ftelia), has shared with them a long and copious history with them. Its intense tourist and cosmopolitan activity, which has continuously kept Mykonos in the foreground, inevitably reminds us of the cosmopolitan ancient Delos during the period of its commercial peak (Hellenistic-roman period). Since the fifties, Mykonos has always been one of the most popular tourist islands of the Mediterranean.
