A lot of nice shops and restaurants, probably a good idea to purposely put down the map and be lost. You might find something surprising!

The Old Town (the old market laneways and the Castle) is worth getting lost in. Don’t worry everyone gets lost - travelling down the hill you will end back up on the harbour.

These ancient laneways are jammed packed with local specialist jewellery designers, cloth makers, fashion retailers and trinkets and great little family run bars and restaurants.

It’s fantastic for photos and the lost tourist pleasure of meandering.

It’s a must do in Naxos. Be warned a few shops are closed on sundays and it’s may not be open in the low season.

Absolute beauty through the little streets of the old town. Great little shops and tavernas! I kept coming back as it was so delightful.

We walked all along the front of the sea front to a statue at the other end. We ended up in the new town by a dancing lights changing colour fountain. In the old town we climbed higher and higher towards the kastro and its many alleyways and archways in the streets. Some parts were cornered off so no access and we didn't go inside. Plenty of shops, tavernas, restaurants to visit. Lovely quaint narrow streets-well worth a visit.

Winding, narrow walkways filled with little shops and restaurants. Such a fun place to wander and to shop.
