Located in the middle of the Cycladic complex of islands and between the popular destinations of Paros and Mykonos, lies Naxos, the largest island of the Cyclades and the once center of archaic Cycladic culture.
Legend has it, that young Zeus was raised in a cave of mount Zas -or mount Zeus-, the tallest mountain in Naxos and the Cyclades, while Naxos is widely known as the place that hosted the marriage of Dionysus, the ancient Greek god of wine.
Blessed by the Olympian gods, Naxos, has always been a popular destination of Greece because of its beauty and vibrancy. It is also one of the best Greek islands for families, offering an abundance of choice in things to do, see, try and -of course- taste.
