The excursion was good, but you can easily enjoy the port town without taking an excursion. A photographer's paradise with cute alleys, flowers, and more cats. I would have been happy for the beach excursion, because it was too far to walk or try and figure out public transportation, but it was allegedly still "too cold" for the cruise beach excursion. I guess that depends on where you are from, because I would have enjoyed hanging out at the beach for a few hours- not too cold, IMHO. The cafe at the beach was super pricey, so that is my only consolation for not having the beach excursion. Plenty of nice restaurants and shops in town, and you can easily walk to Little Venice and up the hills via stairs in the alleys for a nice view.

There just wasn't much to this little monastery. We briefly went to a restaurant for mezes, which were just so-so. The bus made one beach stop for photos. That was IT. Very disappointing tour. The guide was pleasant but didn't go out of her way to show us anything. I guess I should've signed up for Delos.

Going to the Eastern Mediterranean at the end of the season mostly seemed like a great idea considering how few crowds we had to deal with, but the disadvantage was evident in Mykonos. The weather wasn't great and the island certainly was not at its prettiest. Our terrific guide, Mia with Navigator, made our day though with a terrific history of the island, the mythology of Delos, and details about island life on Mykonos past and present. The Panagia Monastery was unexpectedly gorgeous. It's small and pretty on the outside, but on the inside it looks more like you've stepped into a treasure vault than a church. You won't get much time inside, but it's small so it will be enough. Mia's story about the importance of the monastery to the island (often used by the residents as a refuge from pirates!) also made this memorable. The tour also stopped by Elia Beach (nice enough if nothing special), a stop to take photos of Delos, and we got an ouzo sample in a pretty square across from the monastery. A great day despite the dreary weather.

A wonderful monastery which does a lot to support its community. Well worth the visit.
