What a beautiful place to just walk around!
Sep 2021
It's hard to imagine a better introduction to the Cycladic islands than just walking around Naxos's Chora--especially along the water, from the warm shallow family-friendly waters of the city's closest beach to the Temple or Apollo (Potara), then up the warren of medieval streets that climb and wind through the Kastro.

Visiting Naxos in 5-days
Sep 2021
My wife and I just returned from our trip to Greece. We did 3 days in Santorini, 5 days in Naxos, 1 day in Mykonos and 1 day in Athens before flying home. These suggestions for Naxos were excellent and helped make our stay memorable. A few additional comments for others who are planning to go to Naxos. TIP #1: If you are planning to stay for more then one day, you MUST rent a car or ATV/scooter to get around to see the sites around the island. TIP #2: When renting a car/atv, make sure you can access google maps or something similar to help you navigate as the signs are terrible! Also, be careful that google maps identifies routes on non-paved roads. I’m not sure how some of these routes even classify as a “road”. Some of these routs were definitely memorable for sure, but be warned as i think the local goats use these paths more then cars do! TIP #3: We decided to go to Greece in late September. The positives were that it wasn’t that busy with tourists because end of the season. That said, the weather changed quickly and became 20 degrees but very windy. Also, they stop offering as many ferry options so couldn’t do Paros for a day trip as originally planned. TIP #4: There are positives & negatives of going in September (see tip #3), but if you do plan to go in off-season, WAIT to book your hotel or Airbnb accommodations to the last minute. We booked those 3-months in advance and realized that when we arrived, the exactly same accommodations were being offered at sometimes a 50% discount.

Charming Town!
Sep 2021
We loved walking and getting lost in the narrow walkways and alleys of old town Naxos! The homes and the flowers are picture perfect! If you are lucky, you get glimpses through the windows of how residents there live.

Take a moment to wander away from the harbour to visit the old town with castle, church and tavernas with super views.

Very pretty and fun to explore
Aug 2021
The old town is quaint and not as full of tourists as Mykonos. The labyrinth of small streets is also fun to explore. We were also delighted that the temperature was agreeable too.

Very picturesque island town
Jul 2021
It's not a very big old town area, but it is very pretty to walk around and look at the architecture and the bougainvillea flowers and such. I preferred this to any of the walking we did in Santorini.

Great place to wander, better during the day
Aug 2021
What a Great place to wander, better during the day when it is not so crowded. It is difficult to find places because of all twists and turns but that is part of the fun of the experience. At night it is well lit but tons of people mostly unmasked at the moment.

Relaxing Atmosphere!

Second trip to Naxos and this time took time to enjoy Naxos Town. The restaurants, shops, port and friendliness of people made this a very special time in Greece.
