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.

I didn't know much about Naxos, because it is not top famous destination offered in travel agencies all over the world. You always have options like - Rhodes, Mykonos and so on. To my surprise, I found it probably the best place in Greece to spend your vacations, if you are a person who likes more noble and non-party places.... More

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
