The natural beauty, rich history and authentic Cycladic architecture of Mykonos town fascinates visitors right away, with its whitewashed houses and courtyards full of fragrant basil. During their initial walk around town, visitors will admire Little Venice (Alefkandra), a neighborhood of old mansion houses with colorful, weather-beaten facades, built literally on the rocks, the six famous Windmills, the orthodox church of Panagia Paraportiani, the castle, the commercial street of Matogianni and three remarkable museums: the Archaeological museum, the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Folklore museum.
They will also taste the traditional products of the island such as kopanisti (spicy goat cheese), exquisite louza (cured ham with herbs and spices) and the excellent Myconian amygdalota (almond paste and rose water sweets). It is of course impossible to resist the wild nightlife of the island.
During a tour of the hinterland, the visitor can admire the monastery of Panagia Tourliani with its masterful altarpiece, in the settlement of Ano Mera.
