MYKONIAN COUNTRYSIDE TOUR WITH CHORA AND LITTLE VENICE
Join our specialist guide and discover the stunning scenery of the Mykonos countryside and catch a glimpse of the past in one of the island's oldest communities. This fascinating half-day tour encompasses the best of Mykonos outside the capital. From Mykonos Town, also known as Chora, we head for the coastline where you can take in stunning views of the island’s glorious golden sand beaches and inviting coves - including a full view of “Aphrodite's breasts”! Don’t get too excited. They are just hills on either side of St Anna’s beach. Together with the paradise views at Ornos and Kalafatis, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a photoshoot before we head inland to Ano Mera, a unique village which remains one of the rare unspoiled parts of the island. On the return to Mykonos Town, your guide will introduce you to the incredible Panagia Tourliani, a 16th-century Monastery where you will witness how the village unfolds around its impressive bell tower and marble fountain.
Back In Mykonos Town
Upon arriving back in the island’s capital of Chora, we pay a visit to the fascinating Panagia Paraportianí, the iconic 15th century Byzantine landmark composed of five churches. Here you can browse the exhibits of the museum and get a feel for traditions on the island.
To round off the tour, your guide will lead you through the picturesque streets of ‘Little Venice’ and the chance to witness the island’s famous windmills up close and personal.
