Mykonos was once voted the best European island to visit, and it’s not hard to see why so many visitors fall in love with its picturesque landscape. This beautiful region is steeped in culture and each year thousands of tourists visit the medieval Panagia Paraportiani, the Church of Our Lady, one of the most photographed buildings in all of Greece. Countless writers and artists are inspired by the charming paved streets of Little Venice, where the balconies of these colourful fishing houses overhang the sea.
