Park your rental bike, ATV or buggy in the parking area outside Mykonos town and take a stroll along the labyrinth of narrow streets winding their way through whitewashed houses with brightly painted wooden shutters and doors. Window boxes filled with sweetly scented geraniums and colorful bougainvillea tumbling over walls add to the charm of Chora - the local name for Mykonos town - which is considered to be an excellent representation of the architecture typical to the Cyclades region of Greece.
Pubs, clubs, sidewalk cafés and restaurants offer Greek and international delicacies, while souvenir shops, jewelry and clothing stores ensure you won't leave empty handed. Historical treasures in and around Chora include Panagia Paraportiani, the 18th century Kastro, Archeological Museum and the Town Hall. Not to be missed is the town's port and Little Venice, the historic neighborhood which is favored by local and visiting artists. You may see Petros the Pelican wandering by as you enjoy some refreshments at one of the cafés on the port.
Originally used for grinding grain for baked products, the windmills at Chora and Alefkandra remain as a reminder of the island's history in providing food to passing sailors in the early 19th century. Their whitewashed walls and grass covered cone-shaped roofs are one of the first things seen by visitors approaching the island by sea, and are among the most photographed sites on the island.
Rent a bike, rent an ATV, or rent a buggy and spend as much time as you choose to explore Mykonos town before heading off to other destinations on the island.
