Naxos through the ages: In Mythology Zeus or Zas (king of gods and people) grew up in Naxos (Zas mountain). Naxos’ history dates back to 4000 BC, allowing you to admire a lot of monuments from different ages, such as: cycladic acropolis of Panermos (2500BC), archaeological site of Grotta (1300BC), temple of Demetra, statues of Kouros (Melanes/Apollon, 6th century BC), the archaic Portara and medieval castle in Naxos town. Most of them were made by the famous marble of our island.
During the night, the alleys thrive with activity. There are a lot of taverns, restaurants, cafés or bars to spend your time as you wish from evening till the sun rises. Whether you choose to pass your vacation with your partner or with your friends, Naxos provides activities for both: either romantic sunsets and dinners, or dancing and enjoying the nightlife with your pals. Either way, Naxos’ nightlife combines both.
