This town is what photographers' dreams are made of. Photo-worthy scenes are around every twist and turn of the stone pathways. Even without all the seasonal flowers that so many rave about (we were there 1 week before Orthodox Easter), it is still as charming...More

What an absolute delight, despite a whole day of rain. It is March after all. Plus we had two glorious days of sunshine. Bakeries with freshly baked Greek treats, restaurants, and shops abound. It is well worth heading into the tiny streets of the town...More

A wonderful experience wandering the streets . The locals were friendly and lots to nooks and interesting shops. A relaxed experience and not as busy as some of the other Greek Islands.

It was a perfect town with confusing streets and fantastic views of the sea. There are amazing shops and outstanding restaurants. You don't need a car for the town, but you need a vehicle or take a bus to explore Paros. So many establishments line...More
