The Windmills. As we already mentioned, this is probably the first thing to gaze at if you are approaching Mykonos by boat. The landmark of Mykonos, the neighbourhood of the Windmills is a popular sunset spot as well as a place to enjoy the views to the Chora of Mykonos and the Aegean Sea.
The Little Venice. This is one of the most photographed spots in Mykonos! The colourful houses built just above the sea are creating beautiful scenery. This is yet another famous sunset spot which bustles with life all day long and it is considered the best spot for cocktails and starting your night in Mykonos!
Gialos. This is the old port of Mykonos and today is full with restaurants and cafes where also every morning you will find fresh fish and vegetables from local producers. Your steps will take you to another well-known point of Mykonos, the columns on the sea where you can take photos and catch your breath in the most Aegean way.
Panagia Paraportiani. The most famous church of Mykonos is among the oldest found on the island and it is one of the most representative Cycladic church. It is actually five churches built in different periods and in two levels. The icon is considered miraculous.
Alleys. You will need more than one step to explore the corners and the shops in the alleys of Mykonos Chora. Do not panic if you are lost; most of the alleys are leading to Gialos or the Mantw square, where you will sure find something of your taste like an accessory, a piece of clothing or a souvenir which you should buy on the spot since no one can assure you that you will be as lucky if you go back to search for it!
