Mykonos, beach party, wild parties and the top clubs, Cavo Paradiso
The city more ‘intense’ Mykonos is, without a doubt, what is called Chora or Mykonos Town: its narrow streets, its typical white houses, its shops and stalls. If you talk to Chora, however, we speak mainly of the colorful and cute neighborhood of Little Venice and the ‘beach party’ which are often organized in ‘Paradise beach’. This is the most famous beach on the island, but also the most popular with tourists: it is located in the south west coast of Mykonos, about six kilometers from Chora: just to make the idea, at Paradise Beach festivities begin at 5 evening and continue into the night.
The fun at the top and the transgression pure state, however, has only one name: Cavo Paradiso. Besides being the most famous clubs of the island, Cavo Paradiso is considered one of the coolest clubs in the world, also for its enchanting setting: overlooking the Aegean Sea is able to offer an extraordinary spectacle, and of course the music wildest , ennobled by the presence of the most famous international artists.

Mykonos, what to eat and where to stay
When it comes to holiday abroad, for us Italians is also vital eating well: So, what gives us Myjonos the culinary point of view? First of excellent dishes of fish such as grilled octopus, fried squid, sea bass baked, while you can not miss the typical Greek salad with that flavor so Mediterranean. As for accommodation, we recommend to sleep at the Hotel Hermes just two minutes of scooter, (8-10 minute walk) from the center and the hotel Tagoo, both are really exceptional. Finally, could not miss the inevitable caveat: in fact, the only ‘danger’ to choose Mykonos as a goal for their holidays is suffering from nostalgia and melancholy when you come back … because it’s really tough start to return home !

Kea

Spiaggia-Mauna

Kea, the most Greek Cycladic His name is Kea, but the Greeks call her Aunt, without pronouncing the ‘t’, like a relative of theirs. It is one of the largest islands of the Cyclades: just an hour from Athens, but still little known.
It has been dubbed Kalofagas, “the man who knows how to eat.” And some even called him Nero, because it is always in front of the fire to brown the pork souvlaki and lamb which serves in his restaurant in Ioulida, the Chora. Tables neat, overlooking the Aegean, children playing, some cat dozing, geraniums at will, a tourist who does not understand the menu.

We are in Greece, Kea, one of the largest islands of the Cyclades. For its inhabitants is Aunt and how they pronounce the name, it seems that say “aunt.” If you’ve never heard of it, if not for the similarity with the Swedish manufacturer of furniture (but without the “i”), you are among the many who, despite knowing Greece (Italians are sixth in the world rankings as presence Tourism, according to the Association Of Greek Tourism Enterprises), have the feeling that the “aunt” has been locked in a room for a while ‘. Maybe to look good, because it is really beautiful. And is also nearby, which avoids the headaches – that those traveling in Greece knows – to match the landing with the ferry overnight with the lift at dawn to Piraeus. Because the steps are very simple: once in Eleftherios Venizelos, the hub of Athens, you go to the port of Lavrio, 40 km and less than an hour’s drive farther (the same time it takes to reach Syntagma , Parliament Square in the capital). And after an hour’s ferry here we Kea, an island strangely still almost unknown, if you think that you pass to go to Patmos and that is just a few nautical miles from Serifos. Nearest even of Spetses and Hydra, classic goals from the weekend to the Athenians well and that counts among its guests always the real Greece.

But the “aunt” is different, understate, although there Gialiskari the airstrip for helicopters: it takes six minutes of flight, to drink a gin and tonic in Kolonaki, the most sophisticated neighborhood of Athens, as do daily the few millionaires Greeks, the only “presence” tangible luxury in these parts.
Although we do not breathe the crisis as it happens in the other islands, but it can happen to meet people who have had to adapt to a new lifestyle, as Vagia Goula, a former TV journalist who now accompanies us in new clothes driving tourist. One wonders if it will end here as in Argentina after the great crisis in the late nineties, when taxi drivers in incappavi-philosophers and even former executives.
