Paros General Information

The luminous Paros, like a painting in the Aegean Sea, awaits for you to get you drunk with the beauty of its deep blue waters, its dry stone walls, and the simple lines of its mountains, carrying you along in a travel through its picturesque paved alleys, its churches and the magic that springs out of the place.

This dreamy island is located in a distance of only 55 minutes from Athens airport. There are also many charter flights from abroad.

Yet, if you prefer the sweet smell of the sea and the company of dolphins, then you can travel by ship that departs from Piraeus and it only takes 5.5 hours or you can take the modern boats, reducing the time of the distance in 3 hours.

Also, you can depart from the ports of Rafina, Thessalonica, Iraklio of Crete and from the rest of Cyclades, the Dodecanese, and the islands of the eastern Aegean Sea.

Whichever way you choose to travel, the sight of the historical Parikia of Paros where the blue and the white of the houses are joined together in a wonderful combination, will reward you at once, for your choice. The circular roads, the wide whitewashed steps and the sense of bougainvilleas in your hair as you pass through the arches of the yards, create un unrivalled magic that doesn't exist anywhere else.

The Aegean architecture is visible in squares and in small alleys, giving Paros a unique picture. The inhabitants of Paros are open-hearted and hospitable - they have perfectly combined the life and their history with the past in a harmonious structure.

Their houses and lodges, are characterized by simple forms with a particular emphasis to functionalism.

The ceilings are wooden and low and the store rooms are small but practical while their ruling element is the cool yards and the verandas which let the eye wander in the scenery.

The picturesque cobbled roads of Paros, await you to explore them and guide you to small villages that look like they have been taken out from fairy-tales, like the village of Lefkes with the imposing church of Agia Triada and the Folklore Museum, the village of Drios with its Cycladic churches and Marpissa, the village with the white houses - samples of the Cycladic architecture and the astonising sandy beaches of Pounda bay and Pisso Livadi that are full of life and sea sports.
