The old town is a maze of streets with small shops and restaurants and its a lovely experience walking down the winding streets and finding interesting, quaint places to sit and have a coffee or a meal or buy an unusual locally made product. The deeper into the maze you get, the better.

Naxos old town is a charming jumble of narrow streets, decent restaurants and nice shops. A map is not needed unless you need a specific store or restaurant: relax and just wander.

There are several museums and a small theater in... More

Naxos Old Town is small but endlessly fascinating, so much so that I spent every morning and evening wandering around it. It is located on a small hill on a beautiful coastal location and comprises many beautiful streets, which all seem to be under 12 feet wide. All are beautifully maintained and are a photographer's paradise. Many excellent small restaurants... More

Naxos town at first glance doesnt have all the bells and whistles of the iconic Santorini or party town Mykonos. However after visiting 5 greek islands we felt right at home in Naxos. The town had an old charm and wasn't flooded with tourists. Food and attractions were budget friendly and we dined under the stars each night. People were... More

Just wander randomly through an extraordinary maze of well maintained alleys and arcades to discover historic and artistic delights. If you get lost keep heading down hill !
