NAXOS ISLAND

Naxos Island
Naxos Island

The Greek island of Naxos is a great place to relax and take in the surrounding natural beauty of its lovely sandy beaches and blue seas. For history buffs, the island has an archeology museum that traces the varied history of Naxos. The ruins of a Venetian castle, a cathedral and parts of the Temple of Apollo have survived. The old walled city overlooks the harbour and is a great place to wander the old Venetian alleyways. Agriculture is the main industry in Naxos and the food options are fresh and diverse.
