P is for Paros

Greece has many beautiful islands – not least Paros.  When I first returned to Greece in 2010, I went to this island for a short break before starting my new job.

One of the Cycladic chain of islands in the Aegean, it takes about 5 hours by ferry from Piraeus, via Naxos.  This post is not going to be an historical account of Paros, nor will I write too much about it except to say that the Windmill, as seen on arrival in the port of Parikia is traditional around the Cycladic islands.  This time I prefer to show you all in pictures how beautiful this island is.

So, look and enjoy!

  1. I want to be ‘teleported’ there right away. Le sigh.

  2. Thanks for the comments. Glad I can inspire you all and glad, Michael that I conjured up good memories for you.
    Not long till the finish line of A-Z!

  3. It was on the porch of a tiny church there that I shared my supper with a cat. The arch of the porch framed a beautiful sunset.

  4. My first trip to Greece was last August and I jumped on a tour that went to Athens, Mykonos, Paros and Santorini! Paros was definitely a favourite island, and I can’t wait to go back there again! Love the sights, went on a day trip to Naoussa and also spent some time eating delicious food and enjoying some cheap shopping! I bought my first pair of handmade Greek sandals there and they have been the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased! 🙂
