Exploring the Colourful Streets of Mykonos Town

After exploring Thessaloníki, our next day was spent in Mykonos, which was the place that I was most excited about visiting, and it definitely didn’t dissapoint! It was our favourite stop of the whole trip, though these photos definitely don’t do it justice! We didn’t have any excursions booked for Mykonos either, so we decided to just stay in Mykonos Town town at the port and explore the area. As we were tendered instead of being docked (where you’re anchored out at sea and have to get little ferry boats to the harbour), we ended up straight in Mykonos Town.

Our first mission was to find our way through the maze of streets to the famous Mykonos windmills, and then head down to Little Venice for some lunch – but those streets! We got lost so many times and found ourselves circling back either to the harbour or coming back out on random streets that we’d just walked up. It wasn’t too bad though wandering through the pretty white washed streets lined with designer shops, blue doors, pretty floors and bougainvillea draped everywhere.

We finally made it to the iconic windmills and the view was amazing overlooking Little Venice. We planned to stop at one of the restaurants that line the shore, but they were all so busy, it was crazy windy and the sea was splashing up so we decided to head back into the pretty bougainvillea plaza and eat at one of the tavernas there. We chose to eat at Opa Taverna and we all ordered traditional greek salads and my dad ordered the most delicious grilled sardines. It was some of the best food we had the whole trip. So good!

We then explored the area a little more before heading back to the ship, but not before stopping for some ice-cream. We stopped at Gelarte, right at the harbour and it was one of the best ice-creams I’ve ever tried. If you ever go to Mykonos, find Gelarte and order the Pistachio and Bubblegum flavours. So so good!

      Thank you for all your lovely comments! 🙂 Greece is probably my favourite European country that I’ve visted so far – especially the greek islands, though Mykonos and Santorini are by far my favourite! I just want to go explore the rest now haha!

    The whites & blues are so perfect! I’ve secretly always wanted to go to Mykonos because it’s my favorite Fleet Foxes song haha! ❤
