Easy walk to see impressive doorway - fit for a God. Great views of the harbor - check out the rocky area near the sea for ancient stone foundations in the water - secluded enough for a great impromptu skinny dip!

Definitely worth the walk to see this piece of Naxos history! Look back towards town and you can get a good feel for Naxos. We put our feet in the water surrounding the monument! It was refreshing! Definitely take some time and explore.

I had a walk up to and around the Temple of Apollo whilst in Naxos on an evening. Its very picturesque on an evening to walk around, and a good view of Naxos Town from the top too. Well worth a visit.

Wonderful site to reflect on life 2,500 years ago. A different world but no less complicated. See how water cuts through rock nearby.

Near the harbor this gets a fair bit of traffic. It's nice to visit and has a good view of the ocean.

Just a few minute walk from the town center, the Temple of Apollo seems like an ancient gateway. Beautiful any time of day, the photographic opportunities near sunset are special; plan ahead for a good seat and to anticipate the location of the setting sun...More

The temple of Apollo is the first thing you notice when you approach Naxos island. It is a unique and beautiful monument, you get there by foot from Naxos town and there is no entry fee. A good place to see the sunset and take...More

It was fun walking out to the doorway. There are lovely places to swim right next to it. I'm glad we saw it.
