Welcome to Mykonos, the most famous and cosmopolitan island of Greece!
Mikonos is the island where glamour meets simplicity. Celebrities from all over the world, young people, students, families and couples mingle every year in Mykonos to celebrate the Greek summer.
Chora, the colorful and crowded capital of Mykonos, is one of the best examples of Cycladic architecture and a fascinating attraction for visitors. A walk through its narrow streets, houses with colorful doors surrounded by purple bougainvillea impress the visitor.
Matogianni pedestrian street, the most glamorous of all, full of brand-name shops, charming cafes and elegant restaurants. Walking along the promenade you can see the fishing boats reflecting in the blue waters and the Kazarma building, which served as accommodation for the soldiers of Manto Mavrogenous, a heroine of the Greek revolution against the Turks.
One of the most picturesque corners of the island is «Little Venice», an eighteenth-century district, dominated by large mansions with colorful balconies perched on the sea.
It is also worth visiting the church of Panagia Paraportiani, the Town Hall and the castle located above the port, and to get to know some of the histories of Mykonos you should visit the Archaeological, the Folklore and the Maritime museums.
