Naxos is one of the largest and most fertile island of Greece, captivating visitors with wide possibilities for exploration and leisure. This island paradise offers different activities and makes sure there's something for everyone, alongside various entertainment and relaxation options to indulge in.
The island is mostly attractive from its pretty harbor and capital city, Chora. A prominent sight to behold is Portara, the temple of Apolo, the island's most renowned landmark which is located on the neighboring Palatia Islet.
