Naxos: Highlights Full-Day Tour by Bus

1. Naxos: Highlights Full-Day Tour by Bus

The first stop is Demeter temple, a spectacular recently restored ancient temple from 530 BC. Apart from the impressive monument, you'll have the chance to visit the archeological museum located in the same area, and to check out some findings from the site. Continue the tour to Damalas, a cute little village in the heart of Tragea Valley where you'll enjoy a demonstration at the only remaining traditional pottery workshop and the traditional restored olive press. Then drive to Chalkio, a neoclassical village where you can walk in picturesque alleys, visit the traditional citron distillery/museum, and have an espresso while taking in the classy atmosphere. A visit to Panagia Drosiani, the oldest church on the Balcan Peninsula, is a must during your visit. Head then to the famous village of Naxos, Apiranthos, the “marble village," and stroll down marble cobbled streets and take loads of photos. Drive towards the north part of Naxos island to end up on the northeast edge in Apollonas, a small typical Cycladic village. Have a swim or just relax at one of the cafes by the sea. On the way back, stop by the impressive Kouros, a colossal unfinished statue from the 6th century BC, before returning to Chora, taking in gorgeous views along the way.

What people are saying about Plaka, Naxos, Greece

This was the best valued tour we have done on all the 5 islands we have visited. The stops were beautiful, Nik was informative, kind, so passionate about his home and funny. I would highly recommend this to anyone and suggest you do it on your first day and use what you learn to plan for where you would like to visit for more exploration.

We were able to see a good part of the island, which would be impossible without a car. The guide, Nicholas, was excellent, so knowledgeable and personable. We felt very safe with the driver, winding through the mountains and manoeuvring through the narrow roadways. Highly recommended.

Nick was very knowledgeable & passionate about Naxos. It was a great day to see the island of Naxos, highly recommend. An easy and safe way to enjoy the island, tour ran on time.
