  • The restaurants are fabulous around the sq. Tirana ceramics shop is too beaut The boutiques are amazing  more »
  • The small capital of Paros is charming, typical with its lively lanes. Too no doubt at certain times or looks in Paris and not in Paros... probably the price of success. But, before evening, the small town is nice and living without excess with its churches, its shops and its pretty pharmacy or found throughout the range of sunscreens Korres of Greece...

Where to stay in Paros

Paros serves as a convenient base for exploring the Cyclades island group, so its best rooms near popular beaches fill up early in the season. Plan ahead and book your stay in Parikia, the island's biggest town, where you can choose from mid-range hotels and self-catering apartments offering modern amenities and quick access to the sea. Alternatively, consider the small fishing settlements scattered along the island's coastline, where locals rent out simply furnished rooms a walk away from secluded coves and Venetian ruins.
