By bus or taxi to Chalki. Today you will explore the fertile inlands of Naxos: Tragea with its huge olive groves and surrounding mountains. Via old cobbled stone paths you walk via the Venetian fortress Ano Kastro to the ancient marble quarry with a half finished statue (Kouros). Then a little bit further you will end up in Melanes. You travel back to Naxos Chora by bus or taxi.

You walk through a wild granite landscape to the Kouros of Melanes, then through a beautiful valley via Kournochori to Melanes. If you wish you can end your walk here. If you continue you will walk on narrow paths via the ruins of the Jesuit Convent and Kalmitsia to Mesi Potamia. Here you walk along a stream to Pano Potamia, then walk back to Chalki on the same track as in the morning.
