Andros is the northernmost and second larges of the Cyclades. Jr is mountainous throughout, well wooded am cultivated in places. The island is named after Andreus, a general from Crete. It is a popular island with Gteek holidaymakers although foreign tourists are now discovering it. The chora at Kastro is well worth a visit with a small maritime museum, an archaeological museum and a museum of modern art.
Myconos is the tourist Mecca of Greece. Myconos is bright and breezy with fine sand) beaches by day and by night the hum of the bars and throb of disco~ Into the wee hours is all part of the scene. It is the island where local and plain ordinary holidaymakers rub shoulders with the yacht set, the jet set, artists and celebrities from all over the world. The houses, the churches and the narrow winding alleys appear to be a naturally evolved form sculpted from the rocks of the island itself. The cosmopolitan flavor of Myconos may be a refreshing contrast to the simpler pleasures of other islands.
Delos was once that political and religious center of the ancient world. Legend has it that Apollo was born here. The Delos oracle was consulted before major decisions and its fame was second only to that of Delphi. The ancient ruins on this island have been likened to Pompeii nor for any architectural similarity but for the completeness of the picture of ancient life that can be gleaned from it.
Paros is a popular tourist island and typically Cycladic. Houses, shops and churches are dazzling white cubes with bougainvilla and wisteria providing splashes of natural color. The island possesses the finest church in the Aegean, the Karapoliani, and is well worth a visit for the beautiful interior. The museum houses a slab of Parian Chronicle recording Greek history from pre-Homeric times and some sculptures in Parian marble.
