Paros Island

Naoussa in Paros Island Greece

sunny 35 °C

This is a very picturesque village on the island of Paros in Greece, it is 3 hours away from Athens by boat.
Paros is one of the largest islands of the Cyclades with approx. 120 km coastline, situated about halfway between Athens and Santorini.

Already in ancient history Paros was famous for its semi-transparent marble, which is still quarried today. Parikia, the capital, is one of the main harbours of the Cyclades with frequent connections to almost all other islands. The island lies within approx. 2,5 hours (with a high-speed boat) or 4 hours (normal ferry) distance from Piraeus.

Paros Island has a lot to offer its visitors! Whether you prefer a quiet, peaceful holiday enjoying the beautiful nature and traditional Greek atmosphere, an active or educational one, or you would just like to party, you'll definitely find what you are looking for! The infrastructure is very good, the main road around the island being about 72 km long and well sign-posted, which makes it ideal to go discovering the island by yourselves!
