Mykonos Old Town for the narrow whitewashed alleyways - Mykonos, Greece

The narrow walkways get so full over summer time, that it's best to visit them earlier in the day rather than later. The whitewashed alleyways are home to restaurants, bakeries, shops and bars. The only place to be if you're not on the beach!
