Having been to Naxos six times and spending a month there each time speaks for itself really, it is a beautiful place to visit and explore or just chill out by the sea in the many local tavernas in Naxos town or in the many surrounding idyllic villages. The people are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much bother... More

a very great pleasure to come back there whenever is possible in spite of the great capharnaum of the invading ugly (not always) tourist shops everywhere…at the top a venetian castle which is still standing up and in which you can listen to concerts of greek music… the typical cycladic way to design the small and straight little street to...

This was interesting and quaint and well maintained to it;s former build. You could wander for a few hours and not be bored. Some nice shops and restaurants within. Nice glimpses higher up of the town and sea.

It is very relaxed and small but definitely worth a walk. Old Market area is of special interest. Do not rush and experience the charm.

Fantastic spot to get away from the hustle & bustle of December. The weather is in the high teens, most days are sunny, there are plenty of cafes open to while away the hours and some superb historical sites to visit

The old market in Naxos is a maze of narrow streets with shops and restaurants. It is a fun way to use an hour or two, depending upon your tolerance for shopping and if you choose to have a meal. It's a great path to follow while going to the castle and return down a different path.

In a hot afternoon we decided to visit old town: it is a mix of history and comerce,with very narrow streets bordered with interesting souvenirs shops ,that all lead to the castle on the top,after an easy climb. We even get lost and did circle around in the attempt to find a restaurant with the motto " find us if... More

What an amazing place to wander round - and get lost - we found new bits of it every time we walked round. The alleyways bend in all directions, until you don't know which way you are facing, it's like stepping back centuries.

It is a lovely residential area with winding lane ways and small arch ways to duck under, it really is an old town in such walking up there , there is no bars or restaurants , just peoples homes. It is nice and I have friends from New Zealand who love it there, but they have not been to the... More

Narrow winding streets that interconnect (as in Mykonos) lead to all sorts of interesting finds. Especially frozen greek yogurt and ice cream shops! Fun to walk around and get lost in.
