Mykonos, GreeceBy Tdominici
We have traveled to Greece many times, and we have found it to be a country with very friendly people, excellent food and beautiful scenery.
Mykonos is a Greek island and one of the top and famous international tourist destinations, around the world for its cosmopolitan character and its strong nightlife. The island is part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Siros, Paros Greece and Naxos. The Mykonos island has spectacular beaches with crystal clear green color water. The largest town is Mykonos, also known as Chora , which lies on the west coast.
Mykonos town however offers a different architectural style that is unique in the area. Here, flanking the narrow winding streets are buildings reminiscent of a medieval style.
Every house is reached via a flight of straight steps, parallel to the road, whilst the space underneath these steps was traditionally kept for storage. Atop the steps is a wooden painted balcony that sometimes projects over the road to nearly touch the balcony of the house across the street. Here too, you will find a change from the ubiquitous blue and white decor of Greece. In Mykonos town the wooden structures of every house are painted in a rainbow of colours, against the whitewashed walls and blue sky, the effect is absolutely delightful.
