Mykonos Town or Chora: The Town of Mykonos, called Chora by the locals, is a traditional Cycladic village, built around a bay.
The beautiful whitewashed cubic houses with wooden doors, windows and balconies painted in bright colours, narrow streets, forming a labyrinth with beautiful churches, lovely chapels and purple bougainvilleas contrasting with the bright white of the buildings' walls.
Cars are not allowed in the heart of the town for most of the day, which makes the walk among the labyrinth streets particularly quaint, especially during the early morning (the town is calmer than ever at this time, since most people are at the beach or sleeping in after a long night clubbing!)
The best way to see the town is to walk around on foot - it is simply not practical to enter the main part of town by scooter/car because of the narrowness of the lanes.
Numerous cafes, chic boutiques, souvenir shops and fine jewelerry shops are offered in the beautiful capital of Mykonos.
The picturesque Town boasts an amazing gastronomic scene worth exploring. For a delicious lunch or dinner, look no further than Mykonos Town. Here, you will find some of the island's top restaurants.
