Naxos Guide

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.

The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.

From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.


Rethymno Guide

Located between the popular regions of Heraklion and Chania is the beautiful historic town of Rethymno, the third largest town on the island of Crete in Greece.

Rethymno is a place of outstanding natural wealth and a variation of landscapes, with flourishing valleys, harsh mountains and rocky shores following long sandy beaches. The east side of the region is mostly mountainous while the northern and southern coasts are dotted with fabulous beaches which are pretty popular in summer.

The city of Rethymno is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece, with Venetian fortification works, orthodox and catholic churches, mosques, grand Venetian mansions, arches and cobbled streets all together, creating this wondrous traditional atmosphere.

The Venetian port is probably one of the most popular spots of the Town. This small port was of great strategic importance during the Venetian period and has undergone numerous constructions since 1300. Nowadays, the port is lined up by cafes and delicious restaurants where you can enjoy the secrets of the Cretan cuisine.
