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. Use our Naxos journey builder website to add Old Town and other attractions to your Naxos vacation plans.

  • The city of Naxos and the island itself are much less touristy than Mykonos or Santorini. So they are quieter and much less crowded. The city has its small shops in the labyrinth streets rising to the "Castle" (Castro) where the archaeological museum is located, as well as its restaurants with terraces on the port.
