Lively port town has winding cobbled streets that make you wander through the mazing pattern. The town offers good restaurants but be sure you check them out to prevent the tourist traps.

We really enjoyed walking around old town, lots of little alleys to discover, beautiful architecture and flowers. We visited a couple of the museums we stumbled along and saw the old castle too. Pretty easy walk.

A beautiful part of old Naxos. The architecture is mixed - cobblestone walkways with sometimes treacherous steps - so be careful where you step. All steps leading up go towards beautiful views and all steps leading down are towards the port . If you have...More

The boat trip from Mykonos to Naxos varies from 40 to 160 minutes, depending on the type of boat you'll choose to travel with. Since Naxos is the biggest island in the Cyclades, there are many thing to see and do. My... More
