The cosmopolitan Greek island has become a mecca for tourists during the summer, but as CNN says, it doesn’t take long to find peace even there, by getting lost along its lovely, rambling streets.

Narrow alleyways are lined with whitewashed shops and homes, with red, blue and yellow shutters and doors providing an added splash of color.

Mykonos Colorful Street

Its maze of pristine, cobblestone-paved streets offers something for everyone! From shopping, where you can find everything from luxury boutiques to souvenir shops and charming cafes. Nearly everywhere offers an amazing location to take the perfect vacation photo.

In this magical labyrinth, you will also find countless photogenic spots. White buildings with mostly blue, green and dark-red shutters and doors, adorned with bougainvilleas.

The island’s iconic windmills and cobalt-blue-domed churches are the very definition of Greece to most foreign travelers. You can walk there for hours at a time and never lack for photo inspiration.
