According to major Austrian media, Naxos is emerging as the protagonist of the summer after the celebration of the 30 years of connection of the destination with the Austrian market and the anniversary actions supported by the municipality of Naxos and Small Cyclades with the Austrian EOT Office.
"Explore Naxos but the other way around, starting from the unique picturesque villages to end up on its golden beaches," the popular newspaper Kleine Zeitug urges its hundreds of thousands of readers in its extensive feature on the island of Ariadne. At the same time, the entertainment website weekend.at highlights that "according to ancient mythology, Dionysus, the god of joy, preferred to spend his time in Naxos. Anyone who has been there understands why."
"The love affair with Naxos that started for the Austrians at first sight 30 years ago has developed into a wonderful long-term love affair" says diestererin.at website. "We highlight all those aspects of Naxos that will inspire travelers in an authentic way of vacationing. In this context, we are enriching our call with alternative activities as well as new sports events" explains the Deputy Mayor of Tourism of the Municipality of Naxos and the Small Cyclades, Vangelis Katsaras. This year, after last year's successful debut, the Municipality of Naxos and Small Cyclades organizes for the second year the "Naxos 3X3" basketball tournament under the auspices of the Hellenic Basketball Federation and the Union of Cyclades Basketball Clubs. The games will be held on the two days of July 15-16, 2023 at the Beach of Naxos Town in the area of Protopapadakis Square and will attract the interest of accomplished basketball athletes with international recognition.
