"Naxos, Apollo and Venetian Kastro" Naxos Island by SirRichard

Naxos Island Travel Guide: 321 reviews and 959 photos

Naxos was for me at the beginning just a stop for the ferry, heading somewhere else. But as soon as I saw its silhouette from the ferry I knew I'd stay longer:
At the right the venetian Kastro, a Citadel of white narrow streets.
At the left the magnificient solitary gate of the Apollo Temple!!

    Incredible photos! Pity you didn't go to the villages of Naxos. There you can still smell the greek tradition! Even in August!
