Mykonos Town (aka Chora)

Chora. Old Mykonos. Mykonos Town.

Same town, 3 different names. The stunning picturesque seaside town filled with markets, windmills, churches and blue doored white buildings.

This town was a short bus ride away from the hostel I stayed at, and it dropped us off right in the middle of a giant flea market. This little town is made up of little streets you get easily lost in and hundreds of little shops and restaurants. Making for a great place to stop for photos!

Not only Mykonos, but Greece in general, is filled with tiny churches, some so small, only maybe 5 people can fit. Not all are open to the public, but if you find one that is, go inside because you’ll find some amazing paintings and serene atmosphere.

This town is also famously known for their windmills of Kato Mill. 4 tall standing windmills on the edge of the water. Beautiful to sit and gaze at them, watch the water ripple and the people walking along the Little Venice Pier.

Little Venice is a little area of the town right on the edge of the water giving restaurant diners a front row seat to gaze out over the water in serenity while they eat.

This town is also famous for being a main port town in the middle of the bay. Between fishing boats and cruise ships, the port is filled with people and many many tourists from around the globe. What I found odd, is that people were swimming in the same area boats were parked and driving out. But I guess it’s a perfect spot to stay close to the ship while taking a dip in the sea.

Chora was such a cute little town to wander for the day exploring the little white streets, grabbing an ice cream, then chilling by the water watching the windmills from below.
