    Picturesque street with whitewashed buildings and bougainvillea
    This is a narrow picturesque street with whitewashed buildings and faux cobblestone walkway. There are numerous shops, cafes and churches. My wife and I were there in October, so we missed the summer crowds and heat. The young girls posing for selfies was irritating, but could be overlooked. The offshoots of alleyways were just as pretty as the main street. I liked the ambiance of Mykonos but enjoyed Oia’s beauty more.

    Lovely shopping street in Mykonos
    This is a lovely shopping street to walk through during your time in Mykonos. Simply walk through the narrow paths and just admire the flowers and beautiful architecture all around you. I did not experience any touting while walking through, so that was pleasant.

    Tourist Shops, Can be Very Crowded
    This is one of the major streets in town, perfect for a stroll, some shopping, except, during the tourist season, it is completely swamped with visitors stopping to take selfies, almost to the point of congestion. The shops are tourist shops exclusively. Still it is pretty.

Bought a few pieces there yesterday. Once at the cashier they did "special price for you buddy" if I payed with as much cash as possible.
But once got home, I checked the prices online and it turned out they overcharged me a lot for the clothes. Even with their "discounted" prices it was highly overpriced.
One item was listed for €180 in the shop but could be bought online for €69 etc etc.

Too bad, I would have come back to buy more, now I just feel cheated.

The entire Mykonos town is gorgeous and charming. This street and the surrounding area are important historically and while a bit too touristy and crowded when ships are in port well worth a visit. There are gorgeous high end shops and restaurants and this is the center of Mykonos nightlife.

The longes and widest shopping street in Mykonos, location of many high-end shops, both chains and independent. A shopper's paradise, but it has nothing to do with the Greek Isles. Because it is not narrow, it is not congested like the other shopping streets. Not my cup of tea.

Old Town Mykonos is full of wonderful small lanes and streets. All in (mostly) white and blue. With the occasional trees and colorful plants and flowers (in purple). On the streets of Mitropoleos and Enoplon Dinameon you will have quite some traffic with the miniature trucks roaming the streets, which can be a bit annoying. On this street though there was little to no traffic, so it's pretty relaxing.
Lots of independent stores and arts&crafts shops. Lots of souvenirs as well of course. But for us it wasn't about shopping, we just enjoyed walking through these beautiful streets. And for that it was just great.

Mainly designer shops, chic and elegant.  Well kept.  Your bound to walk down it but unlikely to know that this is the 'famous' shopping avenue.  Not cheap but Mykonos generally isn't.  To be honest, the old town is full of designer boutiques, shops, restaurants and coffee shops.  It comes alive at night.  Just walk and get lost in the alley ways!  It is so easy to get carried away and buy!  I am dreading to look at my bank account.

The street is lovely, as many others in Mykonos. This one is famous because of its numerous shops offering luxury items from premium international brands. International expensive products for international jet setters. Nothing special, nor typical.

Matoyianni St is the main street running through Mykonos’ old town. Yes, you could get a map and follow it to find the street but you will stumble across it anyway and the real charm of exploring the old town is in wandering the labyrinth-like maze of lanes and getting a little lost.
Matoyianni St is picture-perfect (maybe a little too perfect if you prefer your small towns more authentically rustic).
Like the surrounding lanes, it’s pedestrian-only and is lined with eye-dazzlingly white buildings, which are all now boutiques, designer stores, restaurants and bars.
Bursts of bright pink and purple bougainvillea and splashes of Aegean blue had us constantly stopping to take photographs.
Even after three days, I found it seriously impossible to not get lost. My only tip is to try to head towards the water and eventually you’ll end up back at the port.
