Paul McCartney adores Mykonos
Liverpool-born McCartney has been seen in Mykonos before. In 2018, he was spotted taking a stroll on the whitewashed streets of the Greek island with his wife, Nancy Shevell.
The couple, who have been married since 2011, was seen walking among the crowds on the cosmopolitan island. They had arrived in Mykonos aboard a luxury yacht from Athens where they visited the Acropolis.

McCartney is one of the most successful composers and performers of all time, and he is known for his melodic approach to bass-playing, versatile and wide tenor vocal range, and musical eclecticism, exploring styles ranging from pre–rock ‘n’ roll pop to classical and electronica.
His songwriting partnership with John Lennon remains the most successful in history.
