The excitement is great, at Giardini Naxos, always: whether or not it is the first time you have come to this little peninsula, a clot of lava congealed by the waters, stretching out info the Ionian Sea, between a little stream and the mythical Akesines to the southeast and the magnificent, deep bay to the northeast. Here is Cape Schiso; here is the landing place of Theocles the founder and of the apoikoi from Euboea and of the Cyclops driven with their ships onto these fertile and beautiful lands by a slight easterly wind. Here there was Naxos, the first Greek colony in Sicily: at this precise geographical point in the world, 2700 years ago, there began thegreat adventure of a people that, in the spare of a few decades, was to create an unparalleled and envied myth and whose cities, for over five hundred years, were to rival, in splendour and beauty, the most splendid and beautiful ones in the homeland.
The emotion is great, always: you just need to give yourself up these vastnesses of sea and mountains, the mysterious seduction emanating from the silent ruins of Naxos, the wild beauty of its river, the discreet charm of the liftle seaside village, the warm hospitality of its people.
