Beautiful City

This is my second visit to Naxos, and the old city is loaded with character, and charm, I don't think this will be our last visit either.

One day in this fabulous old town is not enough to see all...but even though one day trip to Naxos was one of highlights on our trip to Cyclades. Approaching to Hora by ferry early in the morning is great as it is leaving town on the same way in the late afternoon. Hora is so pleasant mix of old... More

This is worth a stroll but most alleys are just filled with shops for tourist. We came across a few shops that had great historical remnants and were given some interesting facts. Up by the castle there is large Catholic population.

We loved the charming paths leading to the Venetian Castle full of welcoming buganvilles. Lots of shops, cafés and restaurants. Naxos is a gem away from the busy more popular Cyclades.

Visiting Naxos old town is a must when visiting Naxos. Preferably visit after sundown when all the small narrow alleys are light up. Here you find different sort of restaurants some with views over the harbour. High up in the old town there's a museum. There's small sign showing where to go when you're in the alleys.

Tourists can easily spend two days just exploring Naxos town. With the 6th century BC Portera standing proudly on the headland Naxos town waterfront provides dining and shopping opportunities. As one begins to penetrate the old town area there is a maze of tiny back alleys designed to confuse Pirates and tourists alike. Some building still have gun ports in... More

Mykonos has been on my to do list for ever so when we manged to stop over on a cruise I was hoping not to be disappointed. And I wasn't. Whitewashed walls and pavements. Super-friendly people everywhere, great restaurants and cafes as well as shops for every taste (and pocket). Yet you dont feel you are in a tourist trap... More
