Tucked inside the old castle. Lots of stairs to arrive but so worth the steps. Celebrated my birthday here with some new friends that I meet here on Naxos. Awesome views. It's a spot for just drinks, coffees, and sweets. A definate don't miss.

Get lost in the little pedestrian streets. Very interesting to explore the castle. Make sure to visit the archaeological museum! If you like photography you will find inspiration and you will surely take some nice photos.

I walked up here first for a guitar concert near the Catholic Cathedral and experienced the great views over the harbour at night. Later during the day I explored the little archaeological museum and enjoyed the shops going up and down.

Simply beautiful, well preserved without being ruined by modern times (too much). The contrast with the the Ancient Greek ruins is also very interesting.

Not too commercial part of the Chora, full of narrow pathways and staircases, with a couple of points of interest. The cultural center offers excellent musical performances in the summer.

There are many boats to visit Naxos Island. Of course from Santorini port you can arrive into 3 hours with blue star ferries.
