• Voutakos - Paros 84400 - Cyclades - Greece



The island of Paros represents one of the most beautiful and exclusive islands of the Cyclades archipelago in the Aegean Sea, in Greece. Known as the third largest island immediately after Naxos and Andros. Paros is a tourist destination for its natural wonders, but not only.

Thanks to its unmistakable atmosphere you can enjoy strolls along the pretty streets of Parikia, the island’s capital, admire the unique architecture and beauty that the resort offers and get lost among the famous white houses in full Greek style.

In addition, since its origins, Paros has been known for its fine marble. Much of Greece’s marble heritage came from the island’s own marble quarries, and now, large sculptures, such as The Venus de Milo, are on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.


The island has a typical Mediterranean climate. The hottest months are June, July and August, when the average temperature reaches 27 degrees.

The island is windy and, in summer, is cooled by a frequent north wind, which has been exploited by the mills on the island.

During the summer, rainfall is low and is concentrated in the period between October and March.

How to arrive?

The main airports in the Cyclades Islands are Mykonos and Santorini. To reach Paros, one of the most popular and visited islands in the Aegean Sea, there are two options:

Airplane + Domestic Flight. Certainly this is the fastest way to reach the island. With an initial direct flight to Athens or the 2 main islands, Mykonos or Santorini, you can get to Paros by an internal flight that lands directly in Paros. If you book well in advance you can take the hydrofoil from one of the main islands and, in just 30 min, you arrive directly on the island.

Airplane + Ferry. The second option is to take a direct flight to Mykons or Santorini and reach Paros by ferry. There are about 4 or 5 daily runs and the duration of the section is about 1h30.

To visit...

After landing in Paros, you will not be disappointed in discovering sights and cultures. In the town of Parikia is the Panagia Ekatontapiliani, the church of a hundred doors, one of the most beautiful religious buildings in Greece. The original church was built in the 4th century, and the oldest frescoes date from the 7th-8th centuries. It is structured like a monastery, with a courtyard, monastic cells and imposing chapels.

Nearby is the Archaeological Museum where you can appreciate the wide variety of prehistoric artifacts the island has to offer. A visit to the Marathi village marble quarry and exploring its fascinating mining galleries is a must.

Rent a car or scooter and you can visit Paros’ villages, surrounded by the island’s idyllic nature and built in full local style. The streets, characterized by small white houses and the ruins of neoclassical and medieval buildings, come alive with visitors strolling around enjoying shopping and traditional foods.

To eat...

Greek cuisine is full of rich flavors and authentic aromas. When you arrive in Paros, you cannot fail to taste their culinary specialties, characterized by fresh, quality products. “Mizithra” is a soft goat’s milk cheese used in salads to replace feta, a typical Greek cheese, which is harder and just as tasty.

Another specialty not to be missed is “Gouna”, a dish of dried and grilled fish. Finally, the traditional “Petimezinia”, pumpkin sweets that you can find in the best-stocked bakeries in Parikia.

If you are a wine lover you should definitely try some of their varieties including: Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Traminer, Chardonnay and Vlachiko. Also be sure to try Dabina, a wine made from an Epirus grape variety grown in 95 percent of the vineyards in the Zitsa wine-growing area. Also, try their typical end-of-meal liqueurs: ouzo and mastika.
