Chora, Mykonos

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

Little Venice and the nearby windmills are probably the most photographed spot in Chora
