    Description

    This tour offers a captivating journey through the heart of Naxos, seamlessly weaving together its rich history, cultural heritage, and delectable local delights. Tailored for aficionados of art, history, and authentic cultural experiences, the expert certified guide illuminates the island's cultural evolution over the centuries.

    This excursion commences with a visit to the temple of Dimitra, the goddess of fertility, whose ancient marble temple predates even the Parthenon. Perched atop a hill overlooking the verdant plains of Sangri, you'll unravel the enigmatic rituals honoring the goddess and delve into the myth of Persephone, symbolizing the cycle of seasons.

    Next, you journey to the colossal, unfinished statue of Apollo at the base of the Melanes marble quarries, unraveling the significance of Naxian marble in ancient sculptural art. The Byzantine legacy of Naxos comes alive as you explore its quaint churches and monasteries, including a thousand-year-old Byzantine church adorned with authentic religious frescoes and hand-painted icons, offering a glimpse into Byzantine art and architecture.

    Venturing off the beaten path to Kaloxylos village, a hidden gem nestled in the Naxian countryside, you meander through timeless olive orchards before immersing yourselves in a century-old olive press for an olive oil presentation and tasting, complemented by local delicacies.

    Your day culminates in the picturesque village of Halki, renowned for its charming bougainvillea-clad streets, where you indulge in a sip of kitro, a local liquor still crafted at a distillery over 120 years old. It's a perfect finale to a day brimming with exploration and immersion in the essence of Naxos's cultural heritage.
