Venetian Museum

Housed in one of the most impressive mansions of the Naxos citadel, the Della Rocca-Barozzi tower, this privately-run museum, that served both as Venetian military headquarters and consulate under Ottoman rule, comprises an excellent display of objects dating to a variety of periods.

The mansion has belonged to the Della Rocca-Barozzi family since 1704. Today, a member of the family, Nikos Karavias, guides visitors in his own exuberant style around the collections of furniture, garments, utensils and paintings reflecting the lifestyle of the nobility in centuries past.

The museum also holds a wide variety of musical events in the courtyard in the evenings, from April through October.

   Daily   10:00 – 15:00 & 19:00 – 22:00
