Little Venice Tours

Situated in Chora Mykonos (aka Mykonos Town), the waterfront quarter of Little Venice is one of the island’s top sunset-viewing spots. Rows of whitewashed old fishermen’s houses—now occupied by bars, shops, and restaurants—back onto the seafront, their brightly painted red and blue balconies jutting out over the water. 

The Basics
Named for its Venetian-style housing, Little Venice is one of Chora Mykonos’ most picturesque quarters. Guided walking tours of Mykonos Town often include a visit to Little Venice, as do shore excursions, which typically add other must-see sights on the Greek island, such as Kalafatis Beach on Mykonos’ southeast coast and Panagia Tourliani Monastery in Ano Mera. Cruises departing from Chora Mykonos often sail by Little Venice, offering unobstructed views of its wooden balconies. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Little Venice is a must for sunset-watchers and photographers. 
  • Browse the shops of Little Venice, which sell everything from clothes to crafts to souvenirs. 
  • If you plan on having dinner here, book ahead. Terrace tables quickly fill around sunset. 

How to Get There
Little Venice is situated in Chora Mykonos on Mykonos, one of Greece’s Cyclades Islands. The easiest way to get there is on foot. From the windmills (Kato Milli), follow the road leading toward the sea.

When to Get There 
Little Venice is postcard-perfect at any time of the day, but especially so at sunset. Plan a sunset cocktail or dinner to fully enjoy the seafront view. From the afternoon on, Little Venice tends to be busy—the later it gets, the livelier it becomes. For a quieter experience, come early in the morning instead.

Nearby Sights in Mykonos
After wandering Little Venice, take some time to explore the rest of Chora Mykonos. Take photos of the Church of Panagia Paraportiani, whose gleaming whitewashed exterior contrasts with the blue of the sky and the Aegean Sea. Visit the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos to examine ancient artifacts from Delos, and peruse the Aegean Maritime Museum to view nautical memorabilia, including old maps, ship models, and navigation equipment.
