Standout shops offering hand-made jewelry are a special attraction in this charming, historic marketplace, and the stone Venetian castle provides an interesting architectural contrast to the all-white Cyclades-style buildings surrounding it.

The island of Naxos combines wonderful sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, nice mountain views and a small but marvellous Old town. Do not miss to walk over and over through the tiny streets, up to the castle 'roots' and the ancient Portara. Enjoy the sunset from the ancient temple! In the old town you can find a variety of restaurants,... More

Beautiful old town in the amazing island of Naxos. Once you are there, you may feel lost but who cares? All roads lead somewhere. Just chill, admire, take beautiful photos, eat drink, shop, walk and walk again. Fantastic!

Naxos town is definitely worth a visit while on this rustic island. Very different from the likes of Santorini and Mykonos, this modest town will impress with unique shops, great restaurants as well as museums and great views from the top of the hill.

If you are in Naxos  this area is a must to visit, it has lots of little stores, places to eat and souvenirs, I like it especially at night, perfect to take pictures in the small streets and white houses, it's very very nice!

Naxos old town was a labyrinth. Once in it took some time to get out but how interesting. Tiny shops, tiny houses with lots of charm and character. Stone staircases, lovely old doors. I fact the whole island was amazing. Authentic, friendly, full of character. I will be back.

The old town is a maze of narrow walkways with shopping, restaurants, hotels & people's houses which is all built around an old castle. We eventually found the castle and got lost many times. The shops all close down in the heat of the afternoon and then re-open at night. Best time to go is at night and plan on... More

Amazing part of Naxos. Filled with history. Narrow white lanes at every turn. Small shops that sold a myriad of merchandise. One could walk around the Old Town for hours.

Most tourists will probably stay on the beaches, but if you walk up to the main square you will find all kinds of cute shops and good restaurants. Our favorite restaurant was Scirocco on the town square. You can walk over to St. George Beach or down to the port. We really enjoyed this town as it was easy to... More

The town is once again very typical of a port town. it can get quite busy when the ferry comes in, but in general it is K We were there at then end of the season, so it would be quieter than normal.
