Naxos 1 - Chora
Naxos is the largest island in the Greek Cyclades. The bustling main town of Naxos Chora is situated
 on a vibrant waterfront, the old original houses spilling from a Venetian Kastro (castle) through a labyrinth
 of narrow winding alleyways. Naxos is a ferry hub, and has an extensive yacht marina. My pictures
 show the beautiful town, ferries and boats, whitewashed churches, and the Portara of the unfinished
 Temple of Apollo. The interior of the Venetian castle contains interesting shops, tavernas and restaurants,
 and my favourite resting place, the Hotel Anixis.
