Wandering around whether during daylight or in the evening, this is a lovely place to just wander. There are many shops, selling lots of tourist tat, but also local living accommodation. There are tavernas and bars to suit all. Try the Jazz Bar for a quiet drink

Naxos is small town quiet which is appealing at times. The old town has interesting restaurants and a good variety of shops as a diversion. Check carefully as to whether the attractions at the top the hill are open but if you are unlucky it is still a pleasant wander. We have been twice in late May before the busy... More

Naxos Old Town - what can I say? I had intended to stay two days but was there for a week. Within about fifteen minutes I knew I was going to be staying for a while. It was just what I needed as I wanted to just get away and relax for a bit. I was here the first week... More

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.

Naxos was one of our favorites islands (we visited 7). Five we saw can only be seen by ferry or small boat. We arrived here on a small 48 pax boat and spent 2 days exploring the town with its many sites including many attractions in and near Naxos Castle (Kastro). There are several museums and a small theater in... More

A gorgeous little labyrinth . Best explored at night when it's cooler and comes alive. Fab little shops and bars. Be careful not to get lost!!!

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
