It's 1 mi up hill trek Kalo Livadi to Ano Meria, you could walk that in about 20-30 min, 6 miles to Mykonos town.

Ano Meria is a small scattered village, nothing like the size of Mykonos town.

The square at Ano Mera is worth a visit, there is a monastry and some great tavernas. great for lunch, or evening meals. There is also a bank and shops. Worth a couple of nights in Ano Mera rather than going every night into Mykonos town. Hiring a car may be a thought, parking at the marina is quite easy now it has been extended.

I took a look at Ano Meria one time coming back from one of the beaches, it did not impress me at all. Nothing special, dull location.

I always stay in or as near as possible to Mykonos town.

There are loads of other villages in the Cyclades which have spectacular locations.

Mykonos Town and Ano Mera are really the only towns/villages on the island. Other settlement areas are basically beach resorts, the biggest of which are Platis Gialos and Ornos. You'll find a good selection of bars & restaurants at both of those beaches, but not much in the way of shops apart from a few minimarkets. Other major beach areas, including Paraga, Agios Ioannis, Agios Stefanos, Kalo Livadi and Elia, offer just a few tavernas.

The main tourist draws for Mykonos are Mykonos Town, the beaches, and nearby Delos island.
