I was just wondering if anyone out there has been to both naxos and sifnos and could give me any inside tips to help me choose between the islands. My husband and I are going to greece Sept 1st-16th 2008. Along with some time on the mainland we want to visit two of the islands. We're going to Santorini but then I also wanted to go to a less touristy island. I had picked out Naxos because it seemed to have diverse landscapes, nice beaches, good hiking in the hills, and a venetian influence. I've been second guessing my decision to go to naxos after reading up on Sifnos. Sifnos had begun to really appeal to me for a couple reasons. They seem to have such great cooking, pottery, hiking, and such a beautiful hilly coastline. Overall they both seem to offer the less touristy experience I'm hoping to have, but I guess I'm wondering if Naxos will offer as much beautiful scenery as Sifnos seems to. Sorry, I know this is kind of a long broad question I was just wondering what opinions people might offer. Thanks for any help.
