Naxos

— 4 nights
Zeus, the master of all gods from Greek mythology, allegedly grew up in a cave on Naxos, a small but fertile island in the South Aegean Sea.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Matoyianni Street and Plaka Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Mikri Vigla Beach and Kalo Livadi Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Agios Sostis Beach (in Agios Sostis) and Mykonos Town (Rarity Gallery & Paraportiani Church). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Eggares Olive Press Museum, take a stroll through Kastro, steep yourself in history at Old Town, and explore the ancient world of Naos Tou Apollona - Portara.

For where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Naxos travel itinerary planner.
