The island of Paros is high on the list of popular holiday options in the Greek islands and in recent years, the island has witnessed a great development in tourism, especially with the construction of the airport.
This Cycladic island is famous for the beautiful beaches, the charming coastal villages, and the intense nightlife. Paros' tourism also offers a lot of interesting sites, including Byzantine churches, monasteries, and ancient monuments.
Places to visit:
- Among things to see during your Paros vacation, Parikia, the island capital, is worth taking a stroll around. A typical Cycladic town with whitewashed two-storied houses lining paved streets with archways, Parikia is also the main harbor of the island.
- Naoussa• from pirates to nightlife and high end restaurants. No one can believe that the marina of Naoussa was once a pirate’s den. The music echoing from the bars, the perpetual motion of restaurant tables and chairs, young crowds that want to live every night to the full, all combine to create a cinematic ambience.
- Lefkes is one the most picturesque villages to visit on your Paros vacation with outstanding natural beauty and are certainly worth a visit on your vacations.
- If you want to travel in time, you’ll visit the most significant early church in the Aegean, and the most important attraction of the island, and stand awestruck in Panagia Ekatontapiliani (Church of 100 Doors).
