Mykonos Little Venice Photos
Little Venice (check out Mykonos Little Venice Photos below) is one of the most romantic places in the whole of Mykonos. Named after the popular Italian city with countless canals, Little Venice is a picturesque part of town that hangs over the sea. As the sun sets in Little Venice, the light shines off the buildings and bounces along the water, making it the perfect spot for a romantic night with your special someone.
The most western part of the town meets the sea. The buildings have been constructed right on the sea"s edge with their balconies overhanging the water. During the 16th and 17th century pirating was common and it is believed this area was used for the necessary quick loading and unloading of goods.
Little Venice evolved from the picturesque Alevkantra beach and extends right into the peripherial areas of Kastro, as it is popularly referred to. Visitors are highly recommended to stay in one of the quaint houses that dot the Mykonos shoreline for the sheer pleasure that they afford. You can sit down with a peg or two of your favorite tipple in the quintessential wooden stairways even as the surging waves crash underneath. A truly magical aura indeed.
