In recent decades, thousands of visitors have travelled to their beloved Naxos; many have chosen to stay, building homes and settling in to island life.
Naxos has always been home to a mosaic of cultures. Testament to that is its unique architectural landscape, an “historic timeline” of sorts apparent throughout the island.
Explore Naxos and discover its rich cultural heritage as you come across prehistoric settlements and ancient monuments; medieval castles; buildings from the Frankish, Venetian and Ottoman era and others in neoclassical or traditional island village design; not to mention the myriad of monuments and statues, each depicting a significant part in the island’s long and varied history.
The Greek island of Naxos is located in the heart of the Cylcades, 103 nautical miles southwest of Greece’s main port, Piraeus. Boasting a gorgeous mix of endless coastline, mountain peaks, and fertile valleys, its landscape is unique to the Cyclades. Naxos is home to the Cyclades’ tallest mountain peak, Mt. Zas at approximately 1.003 metres high. And its amazing coastline boasts a variety of beaches east, west, north and south of the island. In brief, Naxos offers something for everyone: from athletic activities, cultural sights and events, to delicious dining options and a lively nightlife.
Naxos is a world to experience.
