The old town is up on the hill with little streets, white buildings and what it is stil from Venetian domain but nothing more. It could be battere to have a walk around the port and to the 'door 'of the ancient Apollo temple- there isn 't temple more.

So lovely to get lost in the old town of Naxos. Go with the flow and soak up some history and you will surely find yourself at one of the nice restaurants within the Labyrinth. If possible, crab a seat at the outdoor cinema at the castle, watching Zorba the Greek under the stats was an experience to remember!

There are lanes full of shops and restaurants or quieter, more residential paths with classic sights like bougainvillea spilling over arched entranceways and medieval doorways. You can play a game of 'spot the bits of marble taken from the Temple of Apollo', particularly... More

Naxos is so charming, with little winding pedestrian streets up to the castle. The paths are lined with tavernas and shops which makes it a lovely place to visit in the day or the evening (nice and shaded in the day time from the buildings). Be careful that if you like something you might want to purchase, do it at... More

Make sure you don't miss this. Walk around the picturesque tiny old town streets with the nice little shops. You will probably need to make several visits.
