And after 3 nights on the beloved island of the international “Jet-Setters,” you’ll once again be transported via high-speed ferry to the island of Naxos – the biggest and greenest island in Cyclades, with impressively high mountains, fertile valleys, lush green gorges, stunning seascapes and traditional villages perched high on mountain tops, where the inhabitants still wear their traditional dress and live off the fruits of the land!

Naxos is also an island of beautiful old churches, monasteries and Venetian castles coexisting harmoniously with the familiar Cycladic cubic houses.
