An easy walk from Naxos Town up the hill overlooking the harbor. Beautiful views of the island and Naxos Town from the top of the hill.

You shouldn't go to Naxos and miss the Portara. It's unique an provides a great view of Naxos Town. It's worth a visit at any time but it's magical when the sun is setting

Worth the 5 minutes walk across the causeway to get that idyllic shot of the portal at sunset. I doubt whether you'll capture it as this is the time when everybody and their dog turns up. I agree with other contributors that there's a nice...More
