Mykonos, Cyclades, Greece

Ask anybody who has visited the Greek islands and they will tell you that apart from the beaches, nothing compares to the early-evening stroll in the islands’ towns. The light of the late hour, the pleasant buzz, the narrow streets filled with locals and tourists alike, and the romantic ambience in the air as you stroll along streets can lead you to anything from a modern restaurant, a pleasant taverna, a fortress, or an ancient, unassuming site.

Despite its intense commercialism and seething crowds in high season, Hora is still the quintessential Cycladic town and is worth a visit to the island in itself. The best way to see the town is to venture inland from the port and wander. Browse the window displays, go inside an art gallery, a store, or an old church that may be open but empty inside. Keep in mind that the town is bounded on two sides by the bay, and on the other two by the busy vehicular District Road, and that all paths funnel eventually into one of the main squares:Plateia Mantos Mavroyenous,on the port (calledTaxi Squarebecause it’s the main taxi stand);Plateia Tria Pigadia;andPlateia Laka,near the south bus station.
Hora also has the remains of a smallVenetian kastro(fortress) and the island’s most famous church,Panagia Paraportiani (Our Lady of the Postern Gate),
