One of the most popular and familiar landmarks on Mykonos is the romantic area known as Little Venice. This colorful and charming neighbourhood has become well known for its elegant houses, which appear to perched rather precariously on cliff tops, directly above the sea. Located on the eastern side of Hora's Taxi Square and connected by the waterfront, the whitewashed houses and endless balconies within Little Venice truly are a sight to behold, enhanced further by their picture-postcard setting. This neighbourhood stretches from Alevkantra Beach, right up to the outskirts of the town's busting Kastro (Castle) area.
