Sightseen, Culture & local gems, MyExploration, Passepartour, From 1 to 3 hours walking
In the capital of Mykonos you'll find a maze of whitewashed houses with bougainvillea and geraniums on their balconies, sea views and windmills. And a district of waterside houses reminiscent of Venice. This postcard city of the Cyclades also includes many restaurants and luxury boutiques.
- Mykonos old town
- Little Venice
- Church of Paraportiani
- Manto Square
Forget the chaos and fashionable location that attracts tourists, movie stars, artists and jet-setters: together with our guide we'll show you the other side of Mykonos, with its peaceful fishing village.
Among the downtown streets, the color contrasts and the odd pelican strutting around, will ensure your photos get a stream of likes. Walk to Little Venice, a neighborhood of houses that look right out onto the Aegean. Once home to rich merchants, they are now the perfect location for an aperitif by the water's edge.
Not far from here there are windmills: thanks to its position, Mykonos was the ideal place to mill the wheat traded from Venice to Asia.Enter the Orthodox church of Paraportiani. It's a fusion of four churches, above which a fifth was built.
