Naxos is a treasure trove of historical and cultural wonders. Begin your journey with a visit to the iconic Portara, the towering marble gateway standing as a sentinel at the entrance of Naxos harbor. This ancient ruin, part of an unfinished temple dedicated to Apollo, offers stunning sunset views and a glimpse into the island’s rich mythological past. Continue to the Archaeological Museum of Naxos, housed in a historic Venetian building, to explore artifacts that trace the island’s history from the Neolithic to the early Christian period. Don’t miss the ancient sites like the Temple of Demeter near Sangri, showcasing exceptional examples of classical Greek architecture and offering insight into the island’s ancient religious practices.

To truly understand the soul of Naxos, one must delve into its villages and gastronomy. Spend a day wandering through the narrow, winding streets of villages like Apiranthos and Halki. These villages are rich in cultural heritage, with beautifully preserved architecture, small museums, and local art galleries. Embrace the local culinary scene by visiting a traditional taverna, where you can savor dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Naxos is particularly famous for its cheeses like Graviera and Mizithra, and its potatoes, considered some of the best in Greece. A visit to a local distillery to taste Kitron, a unique citrus liqueur endemic to Naxos, is a must for any food enthusiast.
