Our first stop will take you to a honeybee farm where you’ll witness these remarkable creatures at work.

Savor his delicious honey and homemade honey snacks as you bask in the sweet aroma.
Next, we’ll visit a charming village nestled in the mountains of Naxos where you’ll stop at a meat tavern, which also serves as the area’s butcher shop and a gathering spot for the locals.
