Paros Greece has gained in popularity, and I want to share with you why Paros Should be on Your Greek Itinerary! I will tell you everything you need to know about visiting Paros in this Paros Travel Guide, and hopefully by the end you’ll be convinced to add Paros to your Greek itinerary.
Paros Travel Guide
Paros was the third stop in our Greek Vacation. Previously, we spent a few days in Santorini and Milos, and by this time we were in need of a laid back island where we could just go with the flow. We found our refuge in Naoussa, a small village in the north of Paros, that has the energy but it’s not as busy as Santorini or Mykonos.
While Paros is a relatively large island, we decided not to rent a car and planned on staying in the town of Naoussa. From my previous research about the island, it seemed that if you go to Paros, you definitely spend most of your time in Naoussa. And this was true for us. Naoussa has so many cute al fresco restaurants, bars, and shops intertwined in the maze of the center of town. I also noticed that the town doesn’t come alive until after noon. In the morning it was a ghost town, perfect for taking photos of the charming streets.
That being said, there aren’t a lot of activities to do in Naoussa. There is a beach you can visit without having a car, but it’s really perfect for unwinding with a cocktail, spending time at the pool, boutique shopping, and living your best greek life without the crowds.
Getting into Paros
You can get into Paros by both plane and a ferry. I pre-booked all my ferries throughout the Greek Islands on Ferry Hopper, which is a very straightforward service finding you the best ferry options. It’s always better to pre-book especially if you are traveling during high season. Sometimes they do book out in advance.
