Explore the streets of the most fabulous island of the Aegean and experience the true beauty of Mykonos.
Mykonos is a popular and a world known famous destination, due to its Cosmopolitan lifestyle and the variety of visitors from all around the world that it attracts. However, there is much more that this beautiful island has to offer, apart from its nightlife and the popular reflective images of the rich and the famous. Mykonos' traditional way of life is dearly reflected within its city limits, inside which we offer an authentic walking tour throughout some often unappreciated sites by many of its visitors. We offer you an opportunity of a lifetime to experience first-hand the true beauty of the Mykonian town, by walking you through its history and re-living some of its past memories.
Your walk down the Mykonian history "alley", through which our guide will accompany you and share his knowledge and stories, begins at 10am or 5pm (depending on the time you have booked for), after you have been collected from your pick-up location (usually your hotel or the cruise-ship port), at the well-known location of the Archaeological museum and the Remezzo club (where the entrane of the old town is), close to the old port, which is the starting point of the walking tou.
Walking down the coastal paved road, you will pass Manto Square, where the famous monument of Manto Mavrogenous stands, a Greek heroine of the Greek War of Independence. Right after you will head down the famous Matogianni area, where you will find cloting and footwear shops of famous fashion brands and you will see attractions such as the 3 wells, the home of Manto Mavrogenous' mother and the Maritime Museum. From there you will continue your walk, by passing the traditional "Gioras bakery", an underground and old wooden stove, still operational until today where you will be treated a traditional bakery's product and a refreshment, before you head towards five in a row windmills, which still stand proudly as a local attraction, after their operation was paused. Crossing the narrow winding paths, through the castle of the Chora and the Scarpa area where 'Little Venice' is located, which is famous for its picturesque medieval two and three storey houses (you will have 15 minutes free time here), you visit the elaborate church of "Panagia Paraportiani", one of the most famous architectural structures in Greece and get to see the Folklore Museum.
Finally, we head back to our starting point and pass by the famous Agios Nikolaos church at the old port. At the end you will be driven back to where you were picked-up, with the firm belief that we managed to pass on some of our proud history and memories of our past and present.
