A walk through time experiencing life of another era, an unforgettable experience from Naxos island which is much more than beaches and relaxing by the seashore.
First, we will enjoy a tasting experience trying local wine, cheese and much more. We enter the Venetian castle from the South Gate (Paraporti) and walk on the colorful flowery alleys, admiring architectural constructions from another era and getting into a medieval atmosphere which still echoes the past. We’ll walk by Ursuline nuns Closter and school, enter ‘’1739’’ café, located at the terrace of the Ursuline nuns’ dormitories, to enjoy the most spectacular view of Naxos town and the whereabouts. Continue the walk to the Catholic Cathedral and to the East Gate.
Through the maze of the narrow characteristic alleys, we end up at the North Gate ‘’ Trani Porta’’ and then all streets leads to the port of Naxos and you fell you have become a piece of Naxian history. We stroll at the Old Market Place, an inviting area filled with souvenir, art shops and much more. A perfect place to take photos! When we get to the main sea front, we have a break tasting Citron liquor, the famous unique Naxian drink before the final stop, Portara, Naxos landmark, where apart from getting amazed by the size and grandeur and the history you’ll enjoy a magnificent sunset as well!
Special Thank to Visit Greece for the wonderful pictures.
