For a period of time the island was in the shadow of Delos, but everything changed when the Cycladic Civilization came to the area and later attracted the Cretans. Mykonos became a part of the Athenian Alliance and introduced its own currency, but in 146 B.C. the island was conquered by the Romans. After it changed hands several times going to the Venetians and the Turks, participated in World Wars and between the First and Second World War tourism started in the city.
