MykonOS Town - Mykonos Tours

Mykonos Town (called Chora) is the heart of Mykonos. With its beautiful, traditional, cycladic blue and white houses and its tiny streets full of shops, churches, and windmills, Mykonos Town is a pleasure to the eye. Each little corner and every beautiful house is a photo opportunity.

Mykonos Town offers a bunch of things to do; from bars to taverns and cafeterias, to fashionable clothes and accessories boutiques, you’ll never run out of things to do! Here you will have the chance to pick up some typical Greek souvenirs, like olive oil products or leather sandals and postcards for memories that won’t fade.

LITTLE VENICE- Mykonos Tours


The first sight that hoves into view before you pull into the harbour is this row of seven white windmills posted on a small cape. These would most likely have been built by the Venetians as long ago as the 16th century and are oriented to the north to catch the prevailing wind.

They were built close to the harbour to mill grain offloaded from ships to make it easier to transport.The mills have become a symbol for the whole of island and are a simple walk southwest of the Alefkandra quarter


Just north of Little Venice, in the Kastro neighbourhood is the fascinating Church of Panagia Paraportiani. This monument was built between the 15th and 17th century and comprises four separate, interconnected churches beneath a fifth built on top.

That highest church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Panagia) and is easy to pick out for its dome.The oldest is Agios Anargyros, begun in 1425, while the remaining four churches were all constructed in the 16th and 17th centuries.Like the Mykonos Windmills it’s a monument that attracts people for the photo opportunities, framing the asymmetrical white walls against the azure sky.

The island’s own modest but engaging archaeological museum has artefacts recovered from Mykonos and adjacent islands, dating from prehistory to the end of the Hellenistic Period around the 1st century BC.

In the large collection of ceramics is a pithos (jar) from the 7th century BC with reliefs depicting the capture of Troy. There’s also exceptionally old Cycladic patterned pottery from as long ago as 2800 BC, preserved funerary steles from the island of Rineia off Delos and black vases from the Ionian Islands. Another outstanding piece is a statue of Heracles wielding a club, also from Rineia and fashioned from the finest Parian marble in the 2nd Century BC.


Mykonos Lena's Museum: Lena's House Museum is a 19th-century, middle-class Mykonian house, complete with furnishings. A branch of the Folklore Museum, Lena's House is located at Tria Pigadia in the town of Mykonos and it is an authentic middle-class Mykonian residence of the 19th century, representing a typical internal arrangement of space. Named after the last owner of the house, Lena Skrivanou, it contains a spacious drawing room, two bedrooms, and two courtyards and a dovecote.

The rich antique furnishings, such as large frames containing splendid prints, the tapestries, the wood carvings, old mirrors, painted plates, etc. are quite popular amongst the visitors.


Located on the northwestern tip of the island, you will easily notice Armenistis Lighthouse because of its height – it is 19 meters (62 ft) tall. It is a scenic attraction offering great views to the Aegean Sea, and in the background one can notice the neighbouring island of Tinos. See the boats passing by between the two islands.
