Mykonos is probably best known for being one of the wildest party islands in the world, but the Greek beauty has something else to boast about as well – one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean.
Chora is essentially a maze of charming narrow alleys lined by chalky white buildings with bright colorful doors and window frames. Some areas of the small town obviously cater to high-class clientele, with wonderful shopping opportunities and several interesting galleries and restaurants. Other areas are more laid-back and sometimes even very touristy. All of it is very beautiful.
While most streets are crowded with people, it’s always easy to find a quiet alley for a photo op in Chora
The street scene in Chora is very lively and very Greek
Dogs are often much nicer than people
Little Venice and the nearby windmills are probably the most photographed spot in Chora
Mykonos can get quite crowded with visitors during the late summer months…
…but the overall atmosphere is still very calm
Street food is a must in Mykonos – try the legendary gyros from Jimmy’s!
