  • Great visit, gives a picture of the Enetokratias era. • Well enough, one of the main sights of Naxos town and only for the view and the particular color that gives the country, mainly in the evening. However the hours episkepsimotitas is very perioristikes.

  • Unique experience '' exploring '' the wonderful streets of the country. Particularly in the castle is worth a visit in the first '' School of Ursuline '' (1739). The tour is great. Definitely deserves your attention the medieval side of Naxos.

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.
