Mykonos is one of the most visited islands in Greece. The mythological story of Mykonos tells that after Zeus defeated the Giants, he threw them into the Aegean Sea. Their bodies became petrified and created the island of Mykonos. Although there are not many archaeological remains in Mykonos, it is advisable to visit its nearby Delos Island, since it is a sacred island in ancient times.
