Mykonos Town or “Chora” as the locals call it!

Mykonos town or “Chora” is the main town on the island of Mykonos and the place where glamour meets simplicity.

Wonder around its small narrow streets and admire the traditional houses with colourful doors and windows with bougainvillea trees and flowers that make the scenery very attractive.

Small hidden churches with their special architecture pop up as from nowhere as you walk along.

Stroll around the pedestrian shopping streets, always busy, vivid and colourful. The most captivating of all is Matogianni, where brand name stores, chic cafes and stylish restaurants are within easy reach.

Don’t be surprised as you walk along to come across the mascot of Mykonos… a pelican who is usually wondering around the seafront where picturesque fishing boats reflect on the clear blue waters.

Another must to visit in Chora is Little Venice (Alefkantra) an 18th century district. The grand captains used to live here in their mansions whose main characteristic are the colourful balconies and stylish windows. The balconies hang out to the sea reminding pictures of the Italian city.

Up on the hillside stand the famous windmills of Mykonos some of which are bought and converted into luxury villas.
