Follow in the footsteps of Venetian aristocrats as you walk through land where summer palaces once stood. Learn how farmers used an ingenious method to share water, in a system that surprisingly still operates today. Discover the island’s most important achievement during the Classical era of ancient Greece, the ancient aqueduct, and learn how this saved Naxos Town from disaster. See how feudal land systems gave way to today’s small farms that still continue to offer excellent sun-ripened fruits and vegetables. In this tour, we will see the famous Kouroi statues still lying on the marble quarries that have offered the most important exhibits to our national museum and have strongly affected the life of the villagers. Get familiar with the traditional architecture, agricultural life, marble quarries and picturesque villages that preserve their local character and way of life.
