Disappointed that so little is on display...maybe due to end of season. Great views and helpful staff.
Walking up through the winding narrow streets to the Kastro, or the Castle area, is all part of the experience of visiting this 800 year old Venetian mansion, complete with a walled garden used for warm evening concerts. We independently wandered throughout the first floor rooms which included a dining room, bedroom, reception area, library and chapel. Though there was... More
Wonderful opportunity to enjoy the tower and collection that was donated to Chora, a real asset for the townspeople.
I had higher expectations from this museum, I don't know why (probably the expensive ticket contributed to it).

This year there were traditional concerts with the guitar and lute together with some Greek dancing,... More

God knows what the point of this museum is. A few small rooms are filled with odd bits and pieces that the owing family used say a hundred years ago like glaces, petticoats, cheap china, photos and paintings of low quality. Nothing as far as I could see telling about the venetian reign in Naxos. Could use with a good... More
