Uncovering authentic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation. We’re taking advantage of our partnership with Travel + Leisure to get their editors’ recommendations and insider tips on the places you will want to visit. Here are their picks for just one of the 150 destinations they covered.
Church of Panagia Paraportiani
Rising up from its surrounding slate stones, the holy site is actually a collection of five Byzantine-style churches connected by whitewashed walls. It's also one of the most photographed buildings in Mykonos.
Make time for a romantic stroll through this waterfront neighborhood, where a modest sidewalk or seawall is the only thing separating storefronts and café tables from the Aegean Sea. Mykonos's whitewashed windmills, built by the Venetians in the 16th century, whirl overhead.
This ritzy coastline provides the best of both worlds: soft, golden sand and a shallow sea for relaxing, and glamorous people-watching for those who want a bit more of a scene.
Be sure to visit our Shore Excursions page or speak with our onboard Destination Concierge for arrangements to any of these must-sees.
