In addition to quite exceptional archaeological wealth, Athens is also a modern city.

Brushing aside the clichés, Pierre Brouwers and his superb camerawork give a wonderful insight into eternal Greece, a fascinating backdrop to the country’s evolution into the modern era.

More of a destination for jet-setters and honeymooners, Mykonos is also known for its glamorous night-life and luxurious resorts!

The history of Mykonos
According to classical mythology, the Giants of Hercules in a fierce battle to be killed, buried on the island of Mykonos in imposing blocks of granite.
The name of Mykonos, slightly pejorative meaning, a mass of rocks or a rocky point at a later tradition attributes the name of the island, a hero by the name of Mykonos, the son of the King of Delos, Anios, the son of Apollon and was nymph Rhoioa descendant of Dionysos.

Kares and Phoenicians have been the first inhabitants of Mykonos, but Athens was founded by Ionians colonists, and dispossessed the control of the island around 1000 BC, with the former residents.

Mykonos history

Historical sources confirm the following in the ancient world there were two towns on the island in 490 BC, the Persian generals Datis made Artaphernes and a brief stopover in Mykonos, it was resources.In a poor island with limited agricultural ancient, pantheistic times Dionysus, Demetra, Zeus, Apollon, Poseidon and Heracles, the principle gods were worshiped here.

Later in history the island belonged to the Romans and later the Byzantines, who have fortified the island against the Arab raids in the 7th Century, retained control of it until the 12th Century.

After the fall of Constantinople, at the end of the 4th Crusade (1204), occupied the island when her Seigneur (Fortress) by Andrea and Jeremia Ghisi relatives Dandolo, the Doge of Venice. In 1292 it was pillaged and plundered by the Catalans, and later, in 1390, given by the Venetians in 1390, the last of the Ghizi Overlord. In 1537, still under Venetian rule, the island suffered a catastrophic attack by Barbarossa, the admiral of Souleiman the Magnificent.

Later, under Kapudan Pasha, head of the Ottoman fleet, the island virtually self-governing, under the system known as the period of one and a council official voivod (syndics body), which always tries to keep an equal distance from both Turks and Venetians (the last of which finally withdrew from the region, in 1718, after the fall of the castle of Tinos to the Ottomans).

The most popular of Mykonos (which has fluctuated during the current period, usually 2000-5000 people) were from colonies of immigrants (from the nearby island and as well as from Crete) during the period of famine and epidemics that followed often the times of conflict has risen by the end of the 18th Century.

The Mykonos, who were in the same period known as excellent sailors, were successful in trade and shipping, and was also not unheard of piracy. Many islanders were in the “Orloff revolt” (led by the Orloff brothers, from 1770 to 1774), which resulted in a favorable active for them and for Catherine the Great in, due to the highly profitable contracts for the trade between the Ottomans and the Russian Empire.
In the early 30′s already started a lot of famous artists, politicians and wealthy people, mainly from Europe, spending holidays on the island, attracted by its unique atmosphere. Mykonos has adapted well to the post-war situation and the gradual growth of the tourism industry in Southern Europe, the island has turned into a cosmopolitan city and is one of the most successful growth models of its kind and scale in Europe.

Greek Islands FOOD TOUR in Crete - Seafood and MOUTHWATERING Gyros in Chania!

SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week►
Athens Food Tour►
T-shirts►

Chania, Crete is an amazing old town, that’s rich with culture, and has some seriously delicious Greek island food to discover. In this video, you’ll find some of the must-eat restaurants and street food stalls to try, if you love to eat, when you’re in Chania, Crete!

Here are all the places featured in this Cretan food tour of Chania:

Μπουγάτσα Χανίων - For breakfast there’s no better place in Chania to get started than this local spot that specializes in bougatsa, and amazing cheese filled pastry. You can eat it with or without sugar, both was delicious, but I liked it without sugar.
Total price - 5.40 EUR for 2

Oasis - For street food, this is about as good as Greek food gets. Oasis is a local gem that serves Cretan Greek gyro pita, a spit of pork that revolves and slow cooks. When you order, you get pita, filled with gyro meat, seasoning and tzatziki to top it off. It’s outstanding.
Gyro pita - 2 EUR each

Old Chania Market (Agora Market) - One of the many best things to do in Chania, Crete, is walk around the Old Chania Market, especially if you love to eat. I chose to eat at a restaurant called Αγαπήνης Οινομαγειρείο, that serves traditional Cretan food. It’s a market atmosphere, and the food is outstanding.
Total price - 21 EUR for everything

Attractions in Chania - Agios Nikolaos, Chania Promenade, Lighthouse - In the afternoon I did some sightseeing in Chania, which is a very charming town. I would highly recommend taking the walk out to the end of the lighthouse. The views are spectacular.

Thalassino Ageri Restaurant - For dinner in Chania, we walked over to a restaurant called Thalassino Ageri Restaurant a legendary Greek seafood restaurant, along the coast, in an area of town with abandoned buildings. The setting is superb, and they offer a variety of seafood, including fresh fish catch of the day. We ordered a bunch of seafood, and enjoyed the gorgeous environment.
Total price - 74.90 EUR

Thank you for joining me on this Greek food tour of Chania, Crete. Hope it gives you some delicious food ideas, and thank you for watching!

25 - Greek Islands: Cyclades Pt. I

The dream of all dreams, beginning a month voyage island hopping across the Aegean sea, starting with Andros, Tinos, & Syros islands.

Living the ultimate dream of island hopping the Aegean Sea. Since childhood I've always wished to be in Greece. But discovering the treasures of each island is the dream of all dreams. After spending two weeks in the mainland including two Ionian island, I set off from Rafina port and set off for my first island, andros.

Without doing too much research , I left my first island for surprise. I based myself in a cheap hotel in the beautiful sea town of Batsi. Here I enjoyed nice walked in blue and white, a nice swim at a nearby beach as well as a nice sunset swim in town. Although hitchhiking was a failed attempt in the mainland, the Greek island was the exact opposite as I was picked up by a friendly group of Greeks who brought me down to Ormous Korthiou. Here I walked over to a beach I booked marked called OLD WOMAN JUMP, a beautiful beach with an iconic pilar.

Directly south is my next island, Tinos. Tinos is an interesting island as its church, our lady of Tinos has an annual pilgrimage where people crawl from the sea up to the church. But aside from that as well as the beautiful villages I discovered above Tinos, my iconic memory in Tinos was the cheap Airbnb in the village of Arnados. For 60 dollars and two nights, I had an incredible view over half of the island and other Greek islands. With a home cooked meal and local wine, I had the view of a lifetime.

Onward to my next island and the final one in this video, I made my way over to Syros, an island I remember as having the most incredible port city, Ermoupoli. It's a Venetian city with beautiful colored buildings, a maze of walkways that hugs two steep hills overlooking the harbor and beyond. Here I also managed to hitchhike to the other end of the island to have lunch with newly made friends and enjoy a swim at a local beach. Here I took a nice quiet walk to the edge of the island, and realized, I made it.

Concluding this video, I set off for Serifos to continue my Aegean Sea voyage. :) cheers

Hydra, Greece: Traffic-free Tranquility

More info about travel to Hydra: Only a 90-minute hydrofoil ride from bustling Athens, Hydra is the prettiest of the Greek isles. The community is an easy blend of work-a-day commerce, fancy yachts and lazy tourists meandering through traffic-free streets, alongside the occasional donkey.

The final weeks of my Europe voyage brings me to the largest Greek island, Crete. From Santorini, I arrived in the major port city of Irakleio where I was hosted by an amazing couchsurfer. Here I enjoyed some nice beach time in the local beach, some massive gyros and fresh Raki at night at a local cafe, a self guided tour at the world famous Knossos, and a nice swim in the south at Matala Beach.

Heading west brought me to the beautiful coastal town of Chania where I mostly enjoyed nights out on the town eating local food and having local wine. Nearby are many beautiful beaches but instead of hitting those, I made my way over to the Samaria Gorge, a half day hike from the mountains down to the coast.

Making my way east, I settled in the town of Ierapetra due to cheap lodging, a budget friendly Airbnb. The town was nice and quiet and perfect to relax in. But the highlight of being here was the white sand blue water Chrissi island, directly south off of the coast of Crete. Concluding my time on this incredible island, I made it back to Heraklion to catch and overnight ferry to Athens, to finish my time in Europe on Zakynthos. :)
