In spite of all these things Mykonos is distinctly different both in summer and winter. The only thing that changes is the scenery. It has charmed many anonymous and famous travelers that have written many valuable descriptions of the island. Nikos Kazantzakis even wrote in Toledo that, " Jerusalem, Mykonos, and Moscow are the three cities that amazed him ". Mykonos is 94 naval miles southeast of Piraeus , with an area of 83 sq.klms and about 80 klms of coastal line. Small rocky uninhabited islands that are valuable fishing and herding areas surround it. Marmaronisi, Tragonisi and Parsons are some of the most important ones.
