Some time ago (before COVID-19), I had the amazing opportunity to cruise between the Greek Islands and Turkey. During that week aboard the cruise, we visited many places, amongst them, Mykonos. It was my first time in Greece, and I had no idea what to expect. Visiting Mykonos had been on my bucket list for years, I was extremely excited to finally be there.
When I first saw the Island from the cruise it looked like a postcard with bright green mountains and pristine white buildings reflecting on the calm turquoise water, on the coast of a sandy beach, It was gorgeous!
We got off the ship and started making our way to the most important attractions on the Island. Mykonos is quite small and easy to get around walking. We started making our way to Matoyianni Street, one of the most important areas in the center of it all and at every corner, you could see pink Bougainvillea surrounding the impeccably clean alleys, it was straight out of a fairytale, I was in awe.
Our next stop was Little Venice and the famous Windmills; on the way we stopped for a beer and in a few local shops. Being one very close to the other, Little Venice and the Windmills both provide postcard-like pictures and amazing views. After pictures and enjoying the sighs, it was time for lunch. We ate at Alegro restaurant along the Old Port, the feta salad and fresh seafood were exquisite. To walk off our lunch we head towards Panagia Paraportiani, the most photographed church in the Island, we saw the sights for a little bit there before it was time to go.
Sadly, our time in Mykonos was over quickly, but every second was filled with incredible sightseeing, lovely locals, and amazing food. A day in Mykonos is all it took for me to fall in love with this charming Island! It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visit and I can’t wait to go back!
