The small and beautiful village of Galini lies approximately 6 kilometers to the north of Naxos Town (Chora). It is located above the fertile valley of the area, built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a mountain and has less than 200 inhabitants which are surrounded by small vineyards and orchards.
Galini (Greek - Peaceful) has become quite famous and attracts a growing number of tourists due to its well known taverns that serve excellent quality produce such as local meat, fresh vegetables and good quality local wine. The prices are still quite inexpensive and the portions large enough to satiate even the very hungry.
During the evening, Galini is true to its name, very peaceful, quite a contrast with the other more tourist prone locations. A great choice for those who want to eat well, spend less and take it easy.
