This will be one of the first things you see during your visit to Naxos. Very easy walk from the harbor. The site offers a great view of Naxos Town. Not much else on the site itself but certainly a "must" thing to do when...More

An easy walk from Naxos Town up the hill overlooking the harbor. Beautiful views of the island and Naxos Town from the top of the hill.

You shouldn't go to Naxos and miss the Portara. It's unique an provides a great view of Naxos Town. It's worth a visit at any time but it's magical when the sun is setting

There is not much of a temple left but the view of the old town and port from Portara is very picturesque. Try getting there at sunset.

Worth the 5 minutes walk across the causeway to get that idyllic shot of the portal at sunset. I doubt whether you'll capture it as this is the time when everybody and their dog turns up. I agree with other contributors that there's a nice...More

Be prepared to share the sunset experience with hundreds of others! But plenty of room. Note that the ground is uneven.

Another awesome ancient Greek temple to Apollo. A short walk from town. A little tricky if the sea is rough because it splashed up over the causeway. Exciting though. The location is spectacular. Many recommend going at sunset. We liked it better when we had...More
