#1 Little Venice

This Chora neighborhood is known as one of the most stunning places on the island. Overlooking the southwest end of the harbor, it was here that many early ship captains decided to settle down and built uniquely magnificent homes overlooking the sea. Today, many of these historic homes have been transformed into a variety of cozy restaurants, trendy bars, shops and nightclubs, making this a bustling place at all hours of the day.

Recent visitors offered mixed reviews for Little Venice. Some described it as a beautiful place to relax with a drink, especially at sunset. However, other travelers said it's overpriced and crowded, especially when the cruise ships are docked. If you do visit, plan to stop by the windmills for even more photo ops as the two sightseeing hot spots are within walking distance of each other. The area is free to peruse, though you'll want to have euros on hand should a drink, snack or trinket catch your eye.
