Most of the TA members say that it is better to stay in Naoussa rather than Parikia. Parikia is the main port and main town in Paros and has good bus connections to other parts of the town, plus more shops, tavernas, businesses, etc., which gives it an advantage of Naoussa. I am thinking of a trip to Paros and have been going back and forth on which town to stay in. Is there a real difference between the two towns other than Naoussa being more quaint and smaller? And how bad could Parikia be if one wanted to base their stay there?
