This is an amazing place. There is a profound sense of history here. This is the area within the walls of the Venetian Castle. It contains museums, a Cathedral and lots of ancient houses. The gateways are superb.

Tucked inside the old castle. Lots of stairs to arrive but so worth the steps. Celebrated my birthday here with some new friends that I meet here on Naxos. Awesome views. It's a spot for just drinks, coffees, and sweets. A definate don't miss.

Get lost in the little pedestrian streets. Very interesting to explore the castle. Make sure to visit the archaeological museum! If you like photography you will find inspiration and you will surely take some nice photos.

Before you arrived to Naxos you can see the castle from the boat. And you can see it from many other places from the town. Recommended.

Built in 1207 we entered the castle via the lift at the non seaside entrance - straight to the 4th floor at 0.5 Euro per person for lift maintenance - it was a bargain. We wandered through the rooftop cafe after taking some photos from...More

I walked up here first for a guitar concert near the Catholic Cathedral and experienced the great views over the harbour at night. Later during the day I explored the little archaeological museum and enjoyed the shops going up and down.

We went for a stroll in the evening before dinner and this was a really beautiful place with narrow pathways and plenty of history. Few beautiful places to discover on the way. There was a theatre hidden in the alley ways which looks interesting but...More

Simply beautiful, well preserved without being ruined by modern times (too much). The contrast with the the Ancient Greek ruins is also very interesting.

There are many boats to visit Naxos Island. Of course from Santorini port you can arrive into 3 hours with blue star ferries.
