I really enjoyed sauntering through the streets of Parikia. It feels more residential than some of the more touristy spots in the Cyclades. As such during low season it still felt alive and welcoming. Lots of cute homes and streets with nice cafes for food and beverages.

If you are going to Paros, Parikia is the town where you arrive on the ferry boat. It is actually a fun place to stay rather than just a port to arrive at. There are lots of bars shops places to eat and there is a sailing club at one end of the town where you can hang out and... More

The main town of Paros is everything you expect in a Greek Island experience: white-washed houses and streets trimmed with blue, and hand to everything the island has to offer - including great shopping!

Friendly, safe small town to spend a day or a week. We spend 5-days there and weren't in a hurry to leave. Plenty of restaurant options, something for everyone. The historic town/old town is nice to wander, lots of shops and even more restaurants, very picturesque. Beaches are quite nice and the water is crystal clear. We rented a scooter... More

Paros was a great surprise.Not being the "obvious"option at the greek islands such as iOS,Mykonos and Santorini, it is much more affordable and keeps the local touch.Prices are also much more friendly and the Parikia Village is really lovely.It can be reached both by ferry boat from Athens (3 hours) or from a flight from Athens international Airport(40 minutes flight)

We loved walking around Paros. We met friendly shop keepers and saw amazing sights. Our only regret is that we needed more time there!

We were told to stay in Naoussa but at last minute we booked the Argonauta Hotel in Parikia next to the Ferry Station. We were not disappointed since the old town of Parikia is very charming with many choices of restaurants, bars, and also shopping. Easier access to the Airport as well to Ferries to Mykonos or Athens. Naoussa is... More

We took the bus into Parikia from Naoussa just to check it out. The place is a zoo by the ferry terminals....but walk a few blocks inland and the town is a charming maze of cobblestone pedestrian streets, white buildings and blue doors. Absolutely worth a visit.
