Such a beautiful island. If you're looking for the real Greece, then this is surely it! Gorgeous little backstreet tavernas, restaurants and shops and the people are so lovely and welcoming as the Greeks always are. Can't wait to go back!

Old Town Naxos, with its narrow alleys and white washed buildings, offers the typical Cycladic experience without breaking the bank. The lanes and alleys bristle with unique shops, tavernas, and restaurants and seem to wind endlessly into each other. Everything is reasonably priced for what's...More

After visiting the iconic Portara in sunset time, you may be hungry. Yet, I recommend you to slow down your rush for dinner and instead enjoy the evening vibes around the main road. Quite nice !
