With a fully certified and very experienced guide, the history of Naxos will come to life on this short tour of Naxos old town and the castle. The tour is offered in English and Greek. The tour happens every Thursday starting at 10:00 am before it gets too hot.

We can also offer this tour as a completely private experience. Please contact us for a quote.

The meeting point is the KTEL bus stop near the port. The tour lasts about 3 hours and costs only 39 euros per person and we can offer a 20% discount for guests under the age of 12.

Your tour begins at the "Portara" - The landmark of the island dedicated to the God Apollo. Here your guide will give a small talk on the history of the island, with views of the Aegean and the old Venetian castle city itself.  

Then the tour makes its way to the Old Town of Naxos. Walking down the pathways you will be taken back in time from the ancient gods to the Dukes and the walled fortress of the Middle Ages.

 You will experience many sensations every step of the way in the narrow streets. Every corner and every coat of arms above a doorway has a story to tell of the history and important families of the island.

Your expert guide will bring to life the timeless myths and history of Naxos from its early Cycladic past to the Medieval all the way until modern times.  

Before the end of the tour, your guide offers tips on the best places for lunch, shopping, and further activities on your own so you get the most from your stay on our beautiful island.
