The Cyclades are the small group of islands surrounding Delos in the middle of the Aegean Sea. On these islands, the Cycladic culture thrived well before 3,000 B.C.
This lifestyle is sought by the millions of visiting tourists. The narrow winding alleys, the many characteristic Cycladic houses protected from the sun by venetian blinds and ornamented by geranium and oleander. From the taverns, resting in the shade of vine-arbors, one can see the boats and yachts floating on the sea. The wind from the sea slowly turns the wheels of the windmills, while the beaches are full of happy people.
