Fortunately, the thousands of tourists arriving in Mykonos every summer have not yet affected their natural beauty, so you will enjoy the pictures that the white houses on the seafront, the narrow streets and the clean sea will offer.

If you go through Mykonos, you must visit the windmills of Chora, the most famous symbol of the island. Over the years, these mills have been used to grind wheat, but as technology has advanced, there have remained only popular tourist targets.

Another great place you must definitely see in Mykonos is Little Venice. It is a small neighborhood, composed of houses built on the seashore and which got its name due to its resemblance to Venice. Today, these small cottages have been transformed into elegant bars and restaurants, perfect when you want to enjoy a good coffee on the seafront. And if you choose to wander around the city, the narrow streets and rustic houses will charm you with their special charm.

Mykonos boasts of the most luxurious hotels and villas throughout Greece. So if you want to live like a real king during your vacation, there is no better place. What's more, Mykonos has it all: Michelin-starred restaurants, yachts you can spend your evenings and even private docks from which you can admire the surroundings.

And if you want a unique shopping experience, find out that Hora (the main city) is full of shops that offer you designer pieces from the latest collections. It is one of the fashion cities in Europe, competing even with Milan, Amsterdam or Berlin. In addition, after a long shopping session, you can relax on one of the beautiful beaches of this island. You can choose from Kalafatis, Lia, Ornos or Paragas, to name a few.

Mykonos is the island that never sleeps. From dawn to dusk, the streets are full, the clubs are full of music, and the shops are filling you with the most trendy products. But you may need to withdraw a little from the hustle and bustle and visit something else. One of these places is the Gyzi Castle, well protected by the Paleokastro hills.

Another place we warmly recommend is the Neolithic settlement of Ftelia. The oldest buildings in this area date from the third century and attest to the existence of a society in this territory from that period.
