SHOPPING, ART AND CULTURE IN MYKONOS
Mykonos is best known for its golden sun…
Mykonos is best known for its golden sun, effervescent nightlife, captivating beaches and luxurious resorts. Yet its cobbled streets hide countless treasures, inviting you to discover more than meets the eye.
Matogianni street is undoubtedly the heart of Mykonos Chora (main town). Among blooming bougainvilleas and charming houses, the many luxury boutiques and sophisticated local shops tempt visitors with eye-grabbing selections of jewellery, elegant accessories and designer clothes.
In addition, Mykonos honors artistic creation by offering art lovers an unforgettable experience through local art galleries, painting exhibitions, sculpture, and photography by both famous and emerging artists.
Furthermore, Mykonos’ fascinating history and traditions are undoubtedly worthy of exploring through several —small, but wonderful— museums. Amazing collections of Mykonian furniture and ceramics alongside historical manuscripts and photographs, sculptures, jewelry, ship replicas and a map collection, will travel you through time.
And when (you think) you’ve seen it all, a day trip to the nearby island of Delos seems like a perfect idea! According to Greek mythology, Delos is the birthplace of gods Apollo and Artemis. Walking among the ancient ruins, strolling past the impressive Terrace of the Lions and learning so much about precious statues and mosaics at the museum, will make you feel you are back in time and give you a feeling for what this island in ancient Greece was like.
Just a stone’s throw away from the iconic windmills of Mykonos, Lovia Hotel is the perfect place to enjoy all that the most cosmopolitan Greek island has to offer!
