Beautiful bus ride up in the high hills of Amorgos to reach Chora. Typical very quaint village to meander around. Easy to lose yourself in and lots is spectacular photo opportunities. Plenty of small cafes serving local meals and good coffee. Well worth a visit

One the best choras I have ever visited in my life. A little bit more steppy thant the chora in Folegandros, a little bit less touristic. This one is more rustic (less touch up for visitors) and "wild" (the windy could be strong over there).

Amorgos is probably my favourite island of Cyclades. I really enjoyed staing here. The Chora is beautiful. Definitely a must see
