  • We like it a lot, we walk through the narrow paths looking at the nice but old houses with pretty gardens before our dinner in one of the Taverns at the roof with views over the village.  more »
  • If you do not have a car, take the bus from the port cost 2.30 euros and it takes about 20 min. Bus stops outside the city, in the midst of a hairpin bends. After 300. meter is there a few restaurants. Now begins the best thing about the trip, one moves down in the city of narrow lanes, no one meets people who are completely silent, no music, no noise, it is as if time has been set back years. On the way back to the bus, there is a small cafe, go up on tagtaressen and enjoy a refreshment, There is a magnificent view. Remember to catch the bus, if you come for sent, goes the next first of ca. 2 hours.

  • It is of my favorite villages of PAROS as is my mother's village! Mountain village with cobbled streets that bamboozles you into giving away a rich nobility with traditional style and locals happy people! It is worth taking a stroll in the streets of white and indulge in the beauty of this village!

  • I'm in love with this peaceful and beautiful village. I'm sure it was noisier when it was a capital. The point of view is amazing from Flora taverna with Agia Triada church and Molos bay far away. Amazing traditional town ❤
  • Best village in Paros
  • Beautiful place with lots to see, buy and eat. Well worth a visit.
  • nice small town, perfect for little walks along the narrow street and pre-sunset pictures
  • Beautiful village. Don't trust Google maps here!
