An incredible maze...

It's one of the most incredible old town of the Cyclades. A walk in this incredible maze is a must if you like ancient buildings, narrow lanes, and memories of times long gone...

We have now experienced the Old Town in and out of season. In season it is a must but sadly in off season and in the beginning of season there are a lot of the shops that are still closed.

Typical Cyclades old town with winding narrow paths flanked by whitewashed buildings with colorful shutters. Nice place to shop and to find a taverna.

We walked through Old Town and around the Castle area almost every day the five days we stayed on Naxos Island. Loved the shops and variety of restaurants. Enjoyed seeing the original square.

Best time of year is before the major tourist season i.e July/Aug or after as the tiny streets going up to the castle are lined with small independant shops with lovely wares enticing you to come and browse.

Walk the winding streets of the Old Town will reveal a menagerie of restaurants and shops, but the main feature is the Architecture of the walls, houses and archways. take a different pathway to reveal hidden houses and meet some locals. A regular stroll nightly is most enjoyable.

Get lost in the old town. Simply walk around and enjoy the tiny streets, the rock houses and the terraces on the sea. It's full of life, small bars and cafeterias in every picturesque corner and excellent tavernas to enjoy eating and drinking at any time.
