Mykonos is renowned for its bright white buildings and narrow winding streets, clear blue skies and gold-sand beaches. It is one the most popular and glamorous islands in the Aegean Sea and an important destination on Greece yacht charter itineraries. The island vibrates of energy, glamour, fabulous nightlife and plenty of restaurants and night clubs for those who are looking for excitement and entertainment. 

Stroll the street of Mykonos Town lined with white houses and chic boutiques or visit some of the numerous museums and picturesque little churches; all this while enjoying the sweet perfume of bougainvillea, geraniums mixed with the Mediterranean breeze and salty air. Little Venice and the renowned hilltop windmills are places not to be missed on a Mykonos yacht vacation. There are many windmills spread around the Island, with Kato Mili in the Mykonos Town (Chora) standing in a row overlooking the sea to harness the strong northern winds. The windmills were constructed in the 16th century by the Venetians and used to mill flour. Rows of fishing house with balconies overhanding the sea are known as Little Venice. These were originally built by captains and rich merchants. Today, there are numerous restaurants and bars, or little shops and galleries, and the place is a popular stopover for lovers to watch the spectacular sunset.

Constructed in 1905, the Archeological Museum of Mykonos houses findings from the Putrefaction Pit of 425/426 BC, discovered in 1898 on the islet of Rheneia by D. Stavropoulos. It represents one of the oldest museums in Greece. The Aegean Maritime Museum, founded in 1983, showcased the study of Greek maritime history and tradition, and is also well worth a visit. The oldest house on the island is home to the Folklore Museum with a collection of 19th century furniture, jewellery, ceramics, embroideries, marble sculptures, tombstones and a variety of other trinkets. There are also many models of 19th-century Mykonian ships, maps, as well as an anchor and a cannon used during the Greek War of Independence. 

Panagia Paraportiani is Mykonos’ most famous and most photographed church, situated in the neighbourhood of Kastro in the town of Chora (Town of Mykonos). In Greek “Our Lady of the Side Gate”  dates back to 1425, when the construction started, with completion taking place in the 17th century. It is made of five churches; four of them were built on the ground with the fifth one constructed on top of these.
