Greece。Naxos。 Do nothing except for relaxing 在納克索斯島慢活
I decided to visit Naxos after Santorini, this is an island about 2 hours from Santorini by ship, which I took was Blue Star Ferry. Greece is country with a variety of ancient culture. I described the Minoan culture when wrote Crete island before; mentioned Ancient Thira and Akrotiri Archaeological Site of Santorini island; and here in Naxos, it was the centre of archaic Cycladic culture according to Wikipedia.
From the lintel of the temple of Apollo, looked the city and horbour.
The sunset in lintel of the Apollo temple is one of famous photographic points. Many people enjoyed and shared this beautiful moment together.
I stayed also 2 nights in Naxos, it is a good place to just relax. My accommodation is located very close to beach, also not far from harbor, so it is convenient and comfortable. My shared room was half-basement, I can go street just from balcony.
A view of beach. I met a nice Taiwanese couple in the beach and had a great time to chat together, that was special fate!
Although I didn't intend to go any ancient site, still met one in city center. The old castle area is located on the higher area of city, where was inhabited by the Venetians, they were rulers in thirteen century. The old castle area is the place full of medieval century style, it is not far to street Protopapadaki, where is main road along the harbour. There are many modern restaurants and shops in this street.
