Naxos

Naxos (Island) – located 6 hours from Athens/Piraeus via ferry (via Blue Star Ferries), this is one of the larger islands in the Aegean Sea. Unlike other Greek islands, which tend to be arid and known mainly for their white-washed buildings, this island is lush and green with vegetation, complete with impressive high mountains, fertile valleys, green gorges, stunning seascapes and traditional mountain top villages. In addition, this island also has its distinct ruins (Temple of Demeter – from the 6th century BC)
