Mykonos is wonderful! It is one of the most popular Greek islands with cruise ships and its whitewashed architecture and narrow streets are enchanting. Be sure to stop in Mykonos during your visit to Greece for at least the following reasons:
1. It’s easy to get lost while strolling along the numerous alleyways of Mykonos, but just head downhill to eventually find the harbor.
2. The harbor area of Mykonos is extremely attractive with a row of windmills on a ridge.
3. An interesting section of the town is known as Little Venice since the buildings are right above the water. Little Venice has several restaurants and bars with spectacular views.
