Too beautiful! Can spend hours strolling in the little streets and there is a gem in every corner. Authentic Greek! Great how the castle is attached to the city and what hides on its feet. Also great view of the whole town when climbing to the Portara across.

The cutest little streets, so many good places to eat and the best specialty shops. The island of Naxos isnt that great but just for Naxos city i would surely go back again. The street are very alive in the evening but not too party-ish.

Naxos in itself is a wonderful island. We did rent a car one day to see other parts of the island (highly recommended). Naxos Town is a wonderful town to walk through. Slower pace of life. Food was wonderful and no pressure from local restaurants. Lots of 'touristy' stuff to spend your Euros on.

The town is beautiful, and I understand the design was to protect themselves from pirate but it's very easy to get lost. Don't ever lose sight of your tour guide. Other than that the shops, small churches and the mills are beautiful. The St. Nicholas church is also nice.

Plenty of interesting shops, clothes, jewellery, souvenirs. Bars and restaurants (normally open in evening). A good variety of everything.

The old town is lovely. lots of walking up up up, with something interesting around each little corner, great for kids as they can run ahead (a little like a SAFE maze) a few little shops to stop at, and places to have a cool drink, we peeked in the windows of the old homes, places to stop and sit...

Enjoy the greek couisine at its best over there and visit as many... More

Nice and interesting old town but not for children in the summer heat. Strolled round and round for a while and headed for the beach cafe's for a cold refreshing drink!

Standing on the harbour surrounded by an eclectic array of shops, restos , bars, high end ice cream parlours, one would think you've seen everything Naxos town has to offer. But look for the small inconspicuous sign that reads OLD TOWN, go through the door and you're in a wondrous maze of cavernous restaurants, jewelry shops, and bars that are... More
