When I caught my first glimpse of the Port, I was quite overwhelmed. It was so different to anything that had gone before on this trip and the amazing thing was that it looked exactly like the pictures, which is not usually the case.
Mykonos is two short hours by seacat2 from Rafina. We travelled at the end of September and the trip was superb. About fifteen minutes after a quick stop at Tinos (which wasn't particularly attractive) we arrived in the old port of Mykonos Town (Hora).
The owner of our hotel (Hotel Damianos) was waiting for us on the dock. This is a wonderful service offered by most of the hotels in the Greek Islands. I fully realise that many of them come down to meet the ferries to tout for business, but who cares? Even if we hadn't made a booking, it would have been so much easier to find accommodation this way than trudging around town dragging our luggage behind us.
In any event, we did have a booking and the hotel we had chosen was simply beyond belief in its beauty and its location.
- Pros:The fantastic holiday atmosphere.
- Cons:Not a one.
- In a nutshell:Photos could never possibly do it justice.
