Wander the narrow alleys and get lost in the labyrinth. Make sure you stumble across the incredibly romantic "Naxos Cafe". And go up and see the Kastro lit up at night in all its glory.

Its a beautiful place with beautiful people. Have to say that Naxosians are the most friendliest people ever. Loved it and would definitly go there again. Its optimum for families, however everyone can really enjoy it.

Twisty, whitewashed pirate alleys, tiny shops, flowery tavernas with tables set up in the alleyways, and photo ops from every angle, the Old Town is not to be missed. Great for restaurants, souvenir shopping, and just exploring.

Narrow, winding streets meander uphill through the quiet neighborhood with historic homes and gated gardens along the way. At the top is a wonderful museum with statuary and other items rescued from the harbor after being torn down by the Romans. Make sure you check...More

If you go to Naxos you have to visit a night to walk around in the city. So many small shops from which you can buy your souvenirs. Prices are high so choose carefully
