What is it about Mykonos that has captured the world's imagination for over 40 years and refuses to let go? It all began with the picture-perfect town of labyrinthine roads leading you in circles around the beautiful cubist Cycladic architecture that attracted the likes of Jackie Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis in the '60s. With their stamp of approval, Mykonos became the place to be for anybody who was anybody. The sheer contrast of a traditional Greek fishing village and the type of tourists it attracted: partyers, international jet setters, celebrities, and models made the island a unique place to visit and it captured the world's imagination.
The town, with its exceptionally handsome Cycladic architecture is still as pretty, romantic, and happening as ever; the beaches remain pristine, the prices keep climbing, and visitors still cannot get enough. Mykonos has that intangible, inexplicable, undeniable, impossible-to-resist "something" and it has it in spades.
