There is so much waiting for you to see and do in Greece this year, that is, if you’re looking for a bucket-list destination to celebrate the return to travel.

Many of the best cities in Greece are located in stunning settings that are awe-inspiring. Other than the iconic Athens with its plethora of incredible historical sites, Greece has an enjoyable array of cities with some nestled among rocky hills with others overlooking the beautiful waters that surround the country. There are also so many islands to explore.

Saturated in history, Europe’s oldest capital – Athens – has a wealth of historic sites, still dominated by 5th-century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis. No trip to Greece is complete without a visit to the striking blue and white domes of Santorini or check out an island in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea – Mykonos – which is bursting with much more than its party atmosphere. Iconic landmarks include a row of 16th-century windmills, sitting on a hill above the town. Captivating Mykonos is ready to welcome Australians back to enjoy an unforgettable European summer.

There’s plenty of pent-up demand for the island’s unique blend of lively villages, beautiful beaches, authentic cultural experiences, warm hospitality and picture-perfect accommodation, and with direct flights resuming from Sydney to Mykonos via Doha, Australian visitors will once again be enjoying an iconic Mykonos sunset with a side of spanakopita in record time.

A veritable one-stop-shop for an immersive experience of Greek island life, travellers to Mykonos can discover ancient UNESCO World-Heritage-listed ruins on nearby Delos, hit the dance floor at iconic beach clubs, stroll cobbled streets in whitewashed villages, enjoy traditional Greek hospitality in local tavernas and sail the turquoise Aegean Sea.

Fascinating collection

The official season to visit Mykonos runs from May until October. It offers multiple ways to holiday from the one idyllic destination, and the 11 boutique properties of the Myconian Collection portfolio that occupy the most sought-after real estate on the island, from Elia Beach, Ornos Beach and Platis Gialos to vibrant Mykonos Town. Capturing the essence of Greek charm and beauty, guests of the family-owned-and-operated Myconian Collection will enjoy incomparable hospitality and personalised attention, together with the ultimate in luxurious accommodation.

Each hotel in the collection boasts its own original personality and style, distinctive location and decadent design, covering a broad range of accommodation types, rates and entertainment options.

According to the managing director of Myconian Ambassador Hotel Vangelis Daktylides, accommodation options are available to suit couples, families, friends or multi-generational groups.
