What to do and see in Paros, Greece: The Best Places and Tips

December 7, 2017 Oliva Fomby

There are beaches for everyone on Paros—families, partiers, watersports enthusiasts, honeymooners. Anyone can find their perfect stretch of golden sand. The same breeze that rustles orange and pomegranate trees will power your kitesurfing or windsurfing session. In the capital city of Parikia, make sure to pay your respects at the Byzantine "church of 100 doors" (Panagia Ekatontapillani) and visit the seaside ruins of a medieval castle built from the marble remains of an ancient temple.

Panayia Ekatondapiliani Cathedral

Reviewed By Tringy - Sydney, Australia

Visited this old church yesterday and were blown away by its original stone charm and beauty. To think this church was originally built in 326 makes it even more amazing. Signs of some old frescos are just visible at the front of the church as well. Entry is free so make sure you leave a few coins in appreciation.

Parikia Town

Reviewed By TLRCanberra - Canberra

Spent 3 nights here and that's about all you really need to explore the lovely little streets and shops. A laid-back town where everyone you meet is pleasant. I'd avoid the place in peak season though as it'd be positively chaotic. Quaint side streets with typical Greek villas, lots of cats of course, crazy drivers too. Lots of people choose to hire a quad bike to get around. A delightful place to watch the sun set.

Its a little bit ironic writing a review about this once secret gem of Naoussa in this huge base site but as long as it exists i am .A totally pure cycladic unspoiled beach from the past.Nudism is a must and nude walks too.Keep in mind that there are mostly couples situation, both straight and gay.Its a 15 minute walk from the little chapel. Please if you visit this place respect it! Dont litter!

Lefkes

Reviewed By asquared13 - Short Hills, New Jersey

We rented a car and were told to stop in Lefkes for lunch. We walked the village, with its typical white and blue scenery, had lunch in a great little restaurant (Agnadio), and of course went to see the church, with great views of the countryside. Make sure to bring your camera.

Folklore Art Museum Of Cycladic Civilization

Benetos Skiadas, an ordinary fisherman, managed to revive the Greek Tradition by creating his unique, functional and hand made miniatures using materials only from the Cycladic land. And all these without making any draft or using any scientific instruments. He created them only by using the divine gifts with which he was born; observation, perception, passion for creativity.The result is excellent and all the miniatures function in a perfect way. All his memories and personal experiences were strongly impressed on his mind and prompted him - with the help of his skillful hands– to revive the tradition and his dreams.The visitor can admire a all types of Greek ships such as warships, merchant ships and fishing boats which give you the impression that they are ready to sail. Gri-gri, drift-boats, steamships, sailing boats, triremes are all constructed with the traditional shipbuilding and are exact replicas of the genuine models.

Reviewed By tricia792 - Watford, United Kingdom

A lifetimes work of a man who was a sailor. Dozens and dozens of miniatures old buildings, artefacts, and ships. A garden,mainly buildings and artefacts, on walks through shrubs. The museum houses a collection of authentic ships, perfectly detailed.
This museum should not be missed if you are on Paros, it is quite unique.

Faragas Beach

Reviewed By Emma2709 - London, United Kingdom

We sadly found this lovely serviced beach on our last day. There are no sporting activities, but a lovely restaurant and bar with great food, classical music playing, clean and beach chic loos, showers and the beach and water are just stunning. Would go there every day if we went back again! And it is sheltered from the wind to boot!
