 If you are contemplating holidays to Naxos then there are plenty of things to do in Naxos. The Naxos sightseeings include the old sites which are found towards the north of the town and they are really worth visiting. If you would rather not soak up in the sun then there are quite a few places of interest that you will find on the island. The Naxos museum for instance is a great place to begin as it has plenty of archaeological relics going back to 5300 BC.

Other Naxos sightseeings include the Glezos tower and the Iria Temple that is found at the edge of town. Most of these sites are normally found near the main town but if you would rather go and explore the island, then it would be best to hire a car. There are plenty of things to do in Naxos and many villages waiting to be explored with a lot of stone buildings. If you are not very fond of poetic villages and ancient sites then you can spend the day in a water park. It is great fun for both young and old alike with loud music being played and sun loungers to be found all over the park in which to relax. You will also find a few restaurants here and although the prices are a little high there is not much choice so you might like to carry a picnic basket with you.

At sunset, you can go horse riding along the beach. If you are looking for something more lively, there are some clubs mostly near the waterfront but they certainly get crowded. You also have some fine bars at the back of the town where you can treat your ears to the latest in music and relax till the early hours of the morning. Other Naxos sightseeings include the markets where you can shop for unusual gifts to take back home like beaded jewelry, marble ornaments and leather goods. You can also buy modern art from a nice art gallery but the rest of the items are not really expensive.
