After a few days on land in Athens, our group is on the water! Our tour of the Greek isles began with a stop in Mykenos.
This was our first chance to get a real up-close look at a typical Greek village. The white-washed homes climb from the seaside to the sky, perched precariously, seeming to cling to the mountainside.
And, as we’re learning, winding amongst these homes and shops as you make your way through the streets, means you can expect there’ll be some climbing involved! The most popular route takes you to a grouping of old-fashioned windmills along the water’s edge. You feel like you’re stepping out of a picture postcard as the windmills face an area known as “Little Venice,” where restaurants and shops extend to the water’s edge, just as they do in the Italian city for which it’s named.
I hope you enjoy the sites as much as we did!
