Mykonos Little Venice (also called Alefkandra area) is one of the most famous and charming areas in Mykonos island!
The area got its name, as its picturesque setting next to the sea is reminiscent of the Italian city
Mykonos Little Venice is a colorful neighborhood between the Castro and Scarpa, with wooden balconies “hanging” above the sea. From here you can enjoy one of the most beautiful and romantic sunsets in all of Greece.
Overlooking the southwest and the famous windmills, these uniquely magnificent homes were built in the mid-18th century. They originally belonged to rich merchants or captains and the little basement doors that provided direct access to the sea and underground storage areas led people to believe that the owners were secretly pirates.
Today, many of these historic homes have been transformed into a variety of cozy restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs, making this a bustling place at all hours of the day.
A favorite activity is drinking a cocktail in one of the many bars and cafes while watching the sunset on the seashore. You will reach Little Venice walking from the windmills down the stairs. It is also only a five minute walk from Fabrika bus station and there is a sign for it on the other side of the square.
The area also attracts many artists who come to paint the picturesque coastline.
