Sunset Mythology Tour

NAXOS TOWN: SUNSET MYTHOLOGY TOUR

A blissful evening of enchanting myths, framed in the colors of the sunset

Discover the unique charm of Naxos Town under the magical rays of the setting sun. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the narrow streets of the Coast and Old Town, where your guide will bring to life the myths and tales of gods and heroes through enchanting storytelling. Along the way, stops at picture-perfect settings with amazing views are not only inspirational for photography at best but highlight the narrative of the island’s treasured myths. Every step of the immersive walk leading down travels the imagination from the world of the ancient gods to the Middle Ages and the walled fortresses of the ruling Dukes. Explore the winding backstreets of the Old Town where only a local can lead the way through the labyrinth of narrow passages while delving into Naxos’ mythical past. Glimmers of light reflect the awesome myth of the Minotaur of Crete and the marriage of Ariadne with the god Dionysus on the island. The inspirational walk ends at the famous ‘Portara’ which was constructed in antiquity to honor the god Apollo and remains, until today, the distinguishing landmark of Naxos. Your guide will share fascinating, timeless stories which shed light on Naxos’ fame as ‘playground of the gods’ and highlight the island’s sensational views at sunset.

Reviews

We truly enjoyed Naxos Town walking tour. Besides the cultural aspect it was also an excellent orientation tour upon our arrival to Naxos. Our guide explained everything and gave us ideas for the rest of our stay in Naxos.
