Uno dei luoghi più romantici di Mykonos è Alefkandra, o "Little Venice", il quartiere così chiamato perché le case con i loro balconi sono costruite a filo d’acqua e ricordano quelle di Venezia, come se un piccolo quartiere della città italiana si fosse trasferito direttamente in Grecia.
Little Venice si trova nel centro della Chora ed è composta da case tradizionali multicolori, appartenute a ricchi mercanti e capitani nel 1700, che danno l’impressione di galleggiare sul mar Egeo, creando stupore nel viaggiatore.
Le abitazioni costruite direttamente sull'acqua, con i famosi mulini a vento del 1500 sullo sfondo, fanno di quest'area il tema di numerosi dipinti, e un vero sogno per i fotografi.
Sensazionale il tramonto da questo angolo, assolutamente da non perdere: le onde si tingono d’oro e si infrangono sul lungomare mentre il cielo si colora di sfumature dal giallo al rosso.
Le case sono tutte di diverso colore che donano, assieme alla luce del tramonto, alla trasparenza del mare, e ad una piacevole brezza, un aurea particolare alla zona. 
Molte di queste case sono oggi state trasformate in bar e locali alla moda dove poter trascorrere la serata. 
Probabilmente qualsiasi foto scattata non riuscirà mai a rendere giustizia della incomparabile unicità di questo luogo, della sua armonia e della sua indescrivibile bellezza. 
Indosso un look black & denim, una delle mie fashion combo preferite, il pezzo forte è una blouse in pizzo, romantica come questo angolo di paradiso, l'ultimo che visito di quest'isola che rimarrà per sempre impressa nella mia memoria... conto di tornarci al più presto, perchè il viaggio più affascinamente è sempre un ritorno.

One of the most romantic areas in Mykonos is "Little Venice", Alefkandra district is a charming little place.
Little Venice’s outlook to the sea, the buildings that overhang the water and the windmills in the background make this area the subject of many paintings and is indeed a photographers dream.
It is a district that lines the water-front with rows of 18th-century fishing houses with balconies that look out to the sea.

These houses originally belonged to shipping merchants which gave them direct access to the sea. Being built right on the water, you can see how it is reminiscent of the Italian city of Venice, hence it's named "Little Venice".
The old fishing houses have long gone and now these buildings house cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops.This area becomes crazy busy at sunset.
The reason everyone comes down to Little Venice in the evening is to watch the magnificent sunsets that occur each night. As the sun goes down, the sky shows off some brilliant colors of orange and pinks. The reflection on the water is also amazing.
The magnificent sunset just on the water's edge. My camera doesn’t do this justice but nothing can capture the moment better than seeing it through your own eyes.

I'm wearing a black & denim look, one of my favorite fashion combinations, the protagonist piece is a lace blouse, romantic like this slice of paradise, the last site I visited in this island that will stand alone in my memory... I hope to come back soon, because the most charming journey is always a return.
