Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
its beautiful- i was blown away- spend a few days here. we stayed at the Hotel Antica Panada, just off Piazza ST Marco- very quaint, neat, nice.

Venice is very expensive though, so eat away from the main tourist areas- prices drop a lot if you go away from the Grand Canal about a half a mile .

its a maze of tiny streets, shops, cafes, restaurants squares. i will go back just to spend time there ( not in the height of summer though!!!)

more strenuous than i expected- we coped easily, but we are all fit- by RC standards it is tough- you do need to be able to balance, and to paddle for a total of an hour, with stops. well worth it.

I would have likes to also see the town, but the in-port time only allows one excursion.

nice, but after Venice its always going to be less impressive. small cobbled streets, cafes. not wonderful, but OK.

Elia Beach Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
its a beach. that's it. not worth it. rather go on shore by yourself, there is a small beach right there, as well as restaurants and shops. Mykonos itself is a tourist trap, but pretty.

well worth it. just be careful in summer- it was VERY hot, VERY crowded, so go early - by 1000 there were 40 coaches waiting to park , in addition to the 25 already parked !
