Mykonos Town Walking Tour

The Hilltop Windmills of Mykonos
Get to know the authentic side of Mykonos with a local expert guide. Although known as Greece's cosmopolitan island with glitz, glam, and parties, there's far more to Mykonos than meets the eye. Go beyond the beach clubs and learn about its fascinating history, gastronomy, traditions, and cultural significance. 

You'll start in the medieval part of Mykonos, known as the Chora (main town). Discover the traditional way of life for the islanders by exploring alleys and secret corners with your guide. Then, visit the Archaeological Museum and head down the coastal road to Manto Square. Here, you'll find the famous monument of Manto Mavrogenous, a Greek heroine during the War of Independence.

Continue to Matogianni, a buzzy area with shops from global fashion brands. Along the way, admire the Three Wells, the home of Manto Mavrogenous’ mother, and the Maritime Museum. Then, stop at a traditional bakery that produces goods with an underground wooden stove. Enjoy tasting a few samples and chatting with the baker before heading toward the island's picturesque windmills.

Finally, follow the winding pathways through the castle and the Scarpa area, where you'll find the "Little Venice" neighborhood on the waterfront. End your tour with a visit to the elaborate church of “Panagia Paraportiani,” one of Greece's most famous architectural structures.
