I loved my time here. It was laid back but still fun with enough action in the old town so that it's not boring. I loved Naxos.

This is stunning and has many things going for it. Lots of people but not overcrowded with many options in terms of eateries and shopping. The architecture is stunning. Overall it has a great feel to it and very family friendly.
