Naxos travel packages
The largest of the Cyclades islands is home to many ancient legends.
The largest island in the Cyclades, Naxos frequently appears lists of the most authentic Greek islands and for good reason, as it is large enough to not rely solely on tourism. Laying graciously in the heart of the Aegean Sea, this dazzling Greek jewel is an ideal destination for those who wish to indulge in life's simple pleasures, great food, quality sleep, and gorgeous sandy beaches. What visitors love most about Naxos is the genuine rural charm found in the island’s picturesque mountainous villages, which dot the rugged landscape. You'll get to enjoy delicious food prepared using the freshest ingredients grown in family gardens, based on authentic recipes passed down from generation to generation.
Naxos has been the source of quality marble for centuries, and its ancient marble quarries, and their products, are some of the island's many highlights. Naxian marble was used to create the extraordinary sculptures that can be admired on the island of Delos and the archaeological site of Delphi. At sunset, enjoy a leisurely walk along the harbor of Chora (Naxos' old town) towards the island's most imposing landmark: the Portara. This massive marble doorway dates back to 530 B.C. and was built to honor the god of light, Apollo, although it was never fully completed. The energy here is phenomenal. The myths and legends surrounding the island of Naxos are worth the trip alone. After sunset, head to one of the local tavernas found inside the fortified walls of the Venetian castle, the Kastro. If you're short on time, Naxos can also serve as a base for visiting more famous islands, such as Mykonos or Santorini, although those spots themselves deserve a few nights apiece if possible.

Things to do in Naxos

If you're feeling adventurous and want to wander off the grid, Naxos is an ideal destination. The island's terrain is perfect for those who wish to spend their day indulging in outdoor activities. The best way to discover Naxos’s beauty is on a hiking adventure with an enthusiastic local who will take you through small mountainous villages, temple ruins, and ancient marble sculptures. 

To experience the wealth of Naxos’s agricultural activity, join a unique food tour that will introduce you to the Naxian way of life, granting the opportunity to taste delicious foods and local wines. A wonderful way to get introduced to the magic of the Aegean is with a day trip aboard a luxurious catamaran. Soak in the beautiful sites, secluded beaches, and coves that can only be reached by boat. Naxos is the perfect family destination, offering an array of activities for all ages and interests.
