Naxos – Cyclades Trip

This Cylades trip was organized at the last minute.  But no question of going through a travel agency. Headaches and dozens of itineraries later, here we are !

It will be : Naxos, Paros and Santorini for two weeks.

We always said “the best for the end” but this time we start with the best : Naxos !

I really fell in love with this island, love at the first sight ♥. You can feel the greek atmosphere as soon as you arrive at the port and it’s such relaxing. Naxos people are very friendly and accommodating, they will do anything to help you.

Naxos is is the largest and highest of the Cyclades, and known for its potatoes (true !). Historical monuments, little mountain villages, small fishing ports, sublime beaches and narrow streets : Naxos sums up all that the Cyclades have to offer.
