Mykonos

Mykonos, Greece

It is an island where glamour meets simplicity. No matter what how old you are, you can always find something that will meet your expectations at Mykonos. The capital town of Hora is an outstanding example of Cycladic architecture and a must visit sightseeing point for its visitors. The streets look like they were made in some kind of highly artistic cartoon. It is a maze of narrow marble streets and a set of whitewashed houses with wooden frames. Visit Matoyanni street where you can have a lunch/drink and buy something in brand stores. When ready, leave the main town to visit Alefkantra which is also called “Little Venice”. The settlement is mostly marked by mansions with multicolored balconies and classy windows. It is a perfect place for relaxing and observing walloping windmills that are spinning near you. Mykonos is also known for its beaches so make sure you visit at least 4-5 of them during your stay.
