how to move around

Chora of Mykonos is small so you can easily walk around and get lost on the maze of the small alleys. The port is about 600m away from the center but if you arrive at the new port (cruises, old ferries) you will need a taxi as it is 3km away from town. Arriving in chora we noticed a detailed map on the wall (pic 2) that will help you orient yourself and see the main sites (museums, churches etc)

By bus
There are several buses that connect Mykonos town with the beaches (like Paradise, Super Paradise, Platis Yialos etc) many time each day till midnight. The bus station is at Hora, in fact don?t expect any bus station, you will see the buses parked all together next to a square :)

By taxi
There are also some taxis but sometimes you will have to wait long enough for one to come.

By bike/car
Alternative you can rent a car or a bike and things will be better for you. There are several rental companies near the port

fast ferry from Tinos island - Mykonos

fast ferry from Tinos island

How to go there

Chora of Mykonos is located on the west side of the island. The old port that serves the fast ferries is located 600m away from the town while the new port that serves the cruises and the slow ferries is located about 3km north from the town. You will need a taxi from there, there are some also some local buses but not very reliable.

By boat
The boat connection of Mykonos with Piraeus and Rafina ports is great. You can find many companies for Mykonos with regular ferries (about 30 euros one way, the ride takes 5,5 hours) or catamarans that goes faster (3,5 hours but double the price). You can also travel here by boat from other islands like Paros, Santorini etc

By plane
There are also daily flights from Athens with Olympic or Aegean airlines but also from other European cities and many charter flights too. The package groups come this way all the time. Mykonos airport is 3km out of Chora. Taxis will wait outside the arrival hall.
