This church is really strange looking, it is as if it is not completed! You will pass by it if you go to see the wind mills.

I would suggest you have the travel agent contact the cruise line for assistance. I was told that church only opens its doors twice a year for two ceremonies. Perhaps they perform these ceremonies for a fee. If this couple... More

The places you want to visit are at walking distance from the old port of Mykonos. If your cruise ship is at a pier, then it means you are in the new port of Mykonos. It is not at walking distance from the places you want... More
