Little “Venice”


One of the most picturesque corners of the island is Alefkandra or little “Venice”, one district with houses literally in the sea, began to be built from the mid 18th century and were the homes of rich merchants and captains.

Numerous bars and restaurants for every taste can be found there, assuring an amazing experience. Needless to say that little Venice is the place to be to enjoy your cocktail while the sun touches the sea..

A good idea is to visit Mykonos shortly before or shortly after the high summer season. May, the first days of June, September, even October are very good periods to visit.You will avoid crowded sightseeing, you will enjoy your time as well as some of the most famous beaches in Europe.

The occasion was given by a shipwreck in the spring of 1877. Nowadays the original mechanism of the Lighthouse is located in the garden of the Maritime Museum of Mykonos as an exhibit to the public …
