The 10 Best Things to do in Mykonos Town, South Aegean

May 22, 2022 Fernanda Pittenger

Classic whitewashed buildings line the labyrinthine streets of Mykonos, the largest town on the Greek island of the same name. Matoyianni Street is particularly charming. Iconic 16th-century windmills keep watch over the village from the hills above, and the fully functional Boni Mill is part of the Mykonos Agricultural Museum. The Aegean Maritime Museum and the Folklore Museum will give you a proper introduction to the area’s rich cultural and economic history.

Church of Paraportiani

Lovely Byzantine church overlooking the sea.

Reviewed By yunezj1 - Miami Beach, United States

If you go to Mykonos, please make sure to visit this church. It is just such a stunning and a not to be missed site. This is the oldest church in Mykonos which dates back to the late 14th century. It consists in 5 churches in one. They were not all built at once but rather added as time passed by throughout the centuries.

Little Venice

Reviewed By NicolasC973 - Limassol City, Cyprus

A must do while in Mykonos! Sunset time is the best time to visit Little Venice, preferably latest by 7.30pm to have an hour to watch the full sunset while enjoying a refreshing cocktail at one of the cafes situated on the shore of this location. Best enjoyed in a romantic mood with your loved one, or a flirt, easily found in Mykonos ;))

Matoyianni Street

Reviewed By vacationgirl58

The streets are very narrow with lots of shops and colourful ceramic displays. There are also places to stay in this area and lots of places to take very picturesque photographs. It’s always very busy in this area, but that’s all part of the attraction.

Old Port

Reviewed By Luis-in-Arizona - Gilbert, United States

We stayed at Mykonos Island for a couple of days, outside the old town at Platis Gialos, so we rented a car to drive to town. We parked our car at a large waterfront parking area right beside the Old Port, at the new marina on the way into town (parking is free). It extends from the port along most of the Tagoo area seafront. From there you will have about a 15-minute+ walk around the harbor to reach the Delos ferry quay. There also is a parking lot directly behind the windmills. The old port is a small town with narrow streets and tourist shops. We then wandered along the water front past cafes and shops along the water front and back through the labyrinth of tiny streets packed with with tourists. It is great for a walk in the late afternoon to watch the sunset and the estuary with the ships offshore. There are little places to sit and enjoy a coffee, watch the tourist pass by, with beautiful views of the boats and sea, as well as the beautiful whitewashed buildings and blue doors that are a beautiful blue like the water in the Aegean Sea. Just enjoy and take beautiful photos with vibrant colors and nice backgrounds. You could get lost in the maze of beautiful small streets with endless shops, bars, and restaurants. It was very busy when we were there at the end of June 2019 but we were still able to move around freely. Finally, we found our way to the windmills by walking through the row of restaurants in Little Venice.
