Being the largest island in the Cyclades, Naxos boasts about the plethora of its beautiful villages. Quaint seaside villages are famous for their family taverns and jostling beach bars, but the inland hides a number of jems: mountainous villages just waiting to be explored. Apeiranthos, the marble village, is on the top of our list, for numerous reasons. Five museums, a labyrinth of narrow roads, a distinct Cretan background, cafes and renowned restaurants will justify our choice. Chalki, once the capital of the island, is notable for the neoclassical buildings and charming streets, whereas Filoti, the largest village on the island, is the place to interact with the locals while enjoying your coffee in the shade of the Sycamore tree. Potamia, Komiaki and Koronos, all worth visiting for their unique position and relaxing atmosphere. These are just a few of the many villages. Grab a map, plan your day and choose Wheels4u to make this adventure an unforgettable memory.
