Old Town, Naxos Town

#1 of 74 in Things to do in Naxos
Neighborhood Historic Site
Time stands still in Old Town of Naxos. The cobbled walkways and narrow streets lead to restaurants where home-cooked specialities are served in blue-and-white buildings constructed in the early 20th century. Many of these eateries are adorned with antique furniture and artifacts from the townspeople dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Arches and tunnels break through the buildings, and the beach is not far away. A visit to Old Town represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Naxos vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • So much to see, so many streets to wander, so much to explore, so many hostelries in which to enjoy a cool drink or a coffee, and so many interesting people. A fantastic place to be stuck in for a wee...  more »
  • Lots of shops for jewlery and other stuff. Restaurants. People are very nice and welcoming. Naxos was for me the best island in the cyclades.  more »
  • If what you have in mind for the greek islands are narrow streets and white house, then this is the place to be! It is also full of the island's history and offers a great panoramic view. A must!  more »

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.
