The popular Greek island of Mykonos lies in the Mediterranean Sea. Flights to Mykonos from Athens take only about 25 minutes, but the Island of the Winds is also regularly accessible by boat. Following the Greek tradition, the largest town on the island is also called Mykonos. To save confusion, it's nicknamed Chora, or "the town."
Mykonos Airport is two and a half miles southeast of Mykonos, or about 10 minutes away. Although taxis are available, Mykonos car rentals make more sense if you want to get around to see famous landmarks like the Mykonos windmills, which dot the whole island. The Armenistis Lighthouse is a landmark in Funari, about four miles from Chora. Be sure to check out the Agricultural Museum in Ano Myloi, which offers a spectacular view of Mykonos. And keep an eye out for Petros the Pelican, the mascot of Mykonos. The island is a rich tourist destination, so rental cars in Mykonos will help make sure you get to see everything even if you're only visiting for a short time.
Mykonos has museums of archaeology, folklore, and maritime history. Additionally, "Lena's House" is a preserved home that gives visitors a glimpse of 19th-century Mykonos. The Municipal Library, with thousands of volumes, photographs, documents, sketches, and Cycladic coins, is a good place for a history lesson. The rows of fishing houses with balconies overhanging the waterfront have been dubbed "Little Venice"; the famously romantic spot is ideal for catching the sunset or painting en plein air (or doing both). The Tria Pigadia, a row of three shallow wells on the main street of Chora, were dug in 1722 to provide water for local residents.
