Naxos offers wonderful routes to explore because its landscape is varied, offering stunning views that fascinate the nature lovers. High mountains, fertile valleys, plateaus, springs, rivers, caves, huge beaches, sand dunes with cedar trees growing on them, all existing harmoniously on this small piece of earth.
For those of you who are interested in the past and in the history, the historic value of the monuments of Naxos is impressive. The civilisations of ancient Greece, Byzantium, and the venitian era imprinted their mark heavily on the island’s identity.
