How to get from Athens to Mykonos I Your route to your Mykonos Luxury Villa

How to arrive to the ultra-modern International Airport of “Eleytherios Venizelos” and head straight to Mykonos from there!

Really, the best and fastest way to arrive to your Villa is to fly direct from your country of origin to Mykonos International Airport and straight to your swimming pool for a chilled glass of white wine and some nuts and fruit!
Indeed, during the Season almost all air-carriers and due to the high demand, either offer direct flights to the island, or provide connecting flights, sometimes with you staying on the plane for just a half hour, until the plane takes off again and lands in just 25 minutes –there is no time note even for a coffee on board- to Mykonos!

Nevertheless, with all the turbulence that Covid Restrictions have been creating, some air-carriers have either aborted the direct flights or still hesitate to announce.

With Season behind the corner, it might not be a bad idea for travelers to book their flights to Athens, the beautiful capital of Greece since the Ancient Times, arrive to the ultra-modern International Airport of “Eleytherios Venizelos” and head straight to Mykonos from there!

Take a private airplane

Our Concierge team can arrange a private flight for you, on the exact time you arrive to Athens, and fly you safely to Mykonos along with your friends, family, pets and luggage! You will not event exit the Airport building.

Step on a helicopter

Again, Mykonos Luxury Concierge team can arrange a private helicopter flight for you, and have you landed near your villa, with car transfer arranged to wait for 10 meters from the closest heliport! 

Rent a yacht

Go to the nearest marina and enjoy a two hour cruise on the deep blue Aegean waters breathing the fresh air and arriving at the new Mykonos port or any other bay close to your Villa, all ready or a shower and a Mediterranean meal!

Book a direct flight

Aegean Airlines, a heavily awarded Greek carrier, a member of Star Alliance, Greece’s largest airline providing since 1999 until today full service, premium quality haul services, has three o more connecting flights to Mykonos, daily.  Make sure you book well ahead as those flights are reaallyy crowded!

Volotea, a Spanish low-cost airline with bases in Spain, Italy, France and Greece, also offers quite a few connecting flights daily during the Summer Season.

The popular site Skyscanner provides all the details of flights from Athens to Mykonos along with the updated Covid info required by travelers. 

Take the high-speed ferry

Simply book one of the multiple ferries that execute the Athens-Mykonos trip many times daily from either Rafina Port or Piraeus Port.  We advise you not to waste time by jumping between different ferry companies but to use the Ferryhopper instead, which simply includes every available trip.

What is the best time to visit Mykonos

Easter 2021 is around the corner

If you have ever wondered which the best time to visit Mykonos Island is, then this post is for you. Mykonos is a highly popular island in the Greek Cyclades cluster, known far and wide for its glamorous aura and cosmopolitan flair. It has been in the jet set spotlight for a handful of decades, being visited at various times of year as it is in fact an island capable of offering the visitor a wide range of experiences.

Easter on 2nd May 2021

The Season begins in April, when the weather starts to warm up and Orthodox Easter which this year is on 2nd May, attracts tourists from everywhere around the globe. Easter melancholic rituals bring a mystic aura to the island and create a unique atmosphere with all lights being dimmed and the music of bars and restaurants turned off as the Epitaph passes by the narrow white pedestrian streets of the Mykonos Town. 

Easter is the turning point when Mykonos emerges from its winter stillness, and prepares to be the cosmopolitan destination with the abundant joy it offers its guests.  The island is re-energized and ready to host another “summer” season, full of new experiences. Spring in Mykonos is one of the most pleasant times of the year in terms of both weather and crowds. The prices are lower during spring, so you can find some excellent deals on both Villas and flights, particularly at the beginning of the season. You can enjoy a lot of great food and have access to the best restaurants without long queues. You will find tons of cafés and bars to relax at and music playing on every corner. The service is also better, and you will probably get to know a lot of local people when going out for dinner.

What to do in “spring” Mykonos

Visit the charming Chora, where you can spend an entire day walking and sightseeing. Take a walk through the Venetian Castle with its ancient ruins and a view of the village. Visit the Odysseas Elytis Theater and enjoy the surroundings while having a nice break. Bring a small picnic with you and enjoy the quiet setting here in spring. Then, continue to Panaghia Gremiotissa – the highest spot of the village, and watch a beautiful sunset. 

You can enjoy a lot of great food and have access to the best restaurants without long queues. You will find tons of cafés and bars to relax at and music playing on every corner. The service is also better, and you will probably get to know a lot of local people when going out for dinner. 

Take a day-trip to Delos Island – a Monument of International Cultural Heritage. It is a perfect place for exploring the island’s and Greece’s history, where you will find several archeological exhibits. Visit the Archaeological Museum of Delos that is one of the most important museums in the country. Here, you will find the significant findings from the excavations on Mykonos. 

Go and see the Three Wells that provided the water to the entire town in the 18th century, up until the 1950s. The saying is that if you drink from one of the wells, you will one day return to the island. Continue to the Manto Mavrogenous square near the old port and visit the Town Hall as well.

Stand anywhere on this whitewashed island and breathe in.  Keep the oxygen produced by the Aegean Sea into your lungs and fell reborn, reenergized and rejuvenated just by breathing!  This is Mykonos!
