  • Seems much more promising than it is.Only if you are passing by and its a part of your walk in the harbour.  more »
  • We went for a walk in the Castle and climbed with the elevator. Simply wonderful, fantastic and perfect. To go anyway and more than once. It has so many streets that need days to discover all.

  • Worth going one afternoon to see the beautiful alleys with regard to small shops ... up to the Castle you can sit in a beautiful balcony and enjoy the beautiful views of the island drinking something k listening to laid-back music from the store that exists at the highest point of the Castle! Also for those who want to avoid walking there and place (charge €1 per person) is a bit hard to find, well is to ask the locals!

Where to stay in Naxos

As with most island destinations, rooms in Naxos tend to cost more the closer you get to the sea. Beach hotels and seaside apartments come at a steep price, but they offer spacious rooms and modern amenities just minutes from the island's finest beaches. Stay in Naxos Town for quick access to the best shopping and dining options, or choose one of the island's smaller settlements if you prefer a quieter base. Village inns provide simply furnished rooms and no frills, but they also charge less than the resort hotels.
