Accommodation in Naxos Town / Chora

 
 
Chora is the capital and is touristically well developed without being over the top you can find here all your needs for throughout the year. At the market you will find many stalls/shops selling local products such as food, drink. art, clothes and jewellery. There are dozens of restaurants and taverns where you can sample the local food / drink, Chora is not lacking in night life there are many places for all ages.

NAXOS TOWN or HORA, the capital town of Naxos claims to be the gateway to the Cyclades and has the doorway to prove it. The gigantic and somewhat creepy marble frame Portara stands 21 ft high on the tiny Palatia island linked to the town by a short causeway.

The frame is all that remains of what was to be a colossal 6th century BC temple to either Dionysus or Apollo, depending on which guide you read. It was never finished anyway and what's left is a majestic old tooth sticking out of the sea. It's worth a visit, both for the creepy feeling of standing in a giant doorway to nowhere and for good views to Naxos Town.

To the north of the causeway is the Naxos Town Grotta area - once the site of a town now sunk beneath the waves. There is a beach area here. To the south is Naxos Town proper - a happy mix of the brash (vulgar tavernas, bars, car rentals and tourist tat), the twee (an intricate web of whitewashed back streets stuffed with craft and curio shops) and the historic (claustrophobic alleyways that wind up to the Venetian kastro on top of the hill and no less than 45 churches).

Further south of Naxos Town is a suburban sprawl of hotels and studios that back onto the long town beach of Agios Giorgios. The waterfront is a promenaders' paradise with an extensive and attractive sea wall pocked with small, semicircular benches, dozens of street tavernas, shops behind and a prosaic, but interesting, harbour at the end of it.

What strikes the Naxos Town visitor is the cheerful liveliness of the place. A fun fair can be in town or a street festival under way - Naxos is rarely dull. Tiny alleys lead up the hill through cobbled whitewashed alleys to the 13th century kastro. Expect to get lost in this marble-paved warren, with its arched porticoes, crumbling mansions, gorgeous flowerpot gardens and attractive street tavernas.

The kastro in Naxos Town has a Catholic Cathedral and a good museum. Exhibits include some early Cycladic goddesses with prominent breasts and bellies and the museum has stunning views from the balcony. There are daily tours of the Kastro (except Monday) taking in the Venetian Museum, the Archaeological Museum, the Catholic Cathedral and the Byzantium Museum in the Glezos Tower.

Naxos Town may have its crappy tourist glitz but it all seems contained somehow and essentially Greek, despite having grown fourfold in the last ten years on the back of a visitor bonanza. Tourists are more tolerated than touted and I'm not surprised to learn that more visitors stay longer in Naxos Town than in any other tourist resort in Greece. There is a campsite on the road south to Agios Prokopios.
