Early morning turned out to be a relatively tranquil time to see Chora even if the walk there from Ornos meant dodging cars on the sometimes minuscule shoulder of the road. We spotted a donkey on the way, and in town, with the few other tourists there that early, we admired large windmills on hilltops that are among the island's most photographed and visited features. Windmill construction on the island dates to the 16th century.
Then it was off to the winding roads of the Little Venice neighbourhood to get lost amid the whitewashed buildings with their colorful balconies. Going early also offered a chance to see a bit of local life Converse Low Tops Grey
Mykonos is known for its nightlife, and we Converse Sandals Uk
Homesare tucked into the waterfront of the island of Mykonos, in an area known as Little Venice. Mykonos is located in the Cyclades, a Greek island chain in the Aegean Sea. Colourful sunsets and black sand beaches. Donkeys, windmills and a local winemaking tradition that goes back to ancient times.
These are some of the things that stood out on a visit to the Cyclades, a Greek island chain in the Aegean Sea.

First stop was the island of Mykonos. My boyfriend and I arrived by ferry from Athens, then took a bus to the island's centre of activity, the town of Mykonos, also known as Chora.

Oh, wait that's why we were there. And that's why, whenever we could, we avoided busy town centres in favour of lying in the sun with a lazy glass of wine.
Later on, we decided for once to brave the crowds and visit the town of Oia, known for its dramatic sunsets. The town is located on steep cliffs offering a panoramic view of the Santorini's caldera, a volcanic crater that's partly under the sea.
