Crossing the crystal clear blue waters of the dazzling Cyclades, the distant horizon will gradually reveal an authentic miracle of nature, the island of Paros. The islands atmosphere in combination with the unique breathtaking scenery will seduce you as Paros is considered to be one of the most attractive nymphs of the Aegean sea.

Paros is full of natural beauty, endless beaches, crystal clear waters, green scenery and untouched corners being in the same time one of the most cosmopolitan summer resorts offering intense night life. The multifarious personality of Paros will satisfy even the most demanding visitor.

Because of its central location in the Cyclades, probably more than one out of three ferries that leave Piraeus harbor for the Greek Islands, makes a stop at Paros, the trip takes about 3 hours with the fast ferries. The boats also pause here on their way back from the southern islands. Air links exist only with Athens at the moment, all with the Olympic Airways DASH 8. The trip to/from Athens takes about 25 minutes.A new bigger Airport is constructed that could host international chartered flights and will be ready next year. The neighboring islands of Mykonos and Santorini host international chartered flights.

Paros, one of the most cosmopolitan amongst Cyclades, every summer is full of life. The picturesque ports, the traditional villages, the beaches and the intense night life make this island one of the best choices for your vacation. Typical Cycladic island, Paros combines the white color of it's houses with the red of the hibiscus ,the green of it's grape vines with the golden of it's sandy beaches .All these come to a perfect harmony with the crystal clear waters of the Aegean.

The island has quarries of the most famous white marble in the world, the marvelous Parian marble.This marble is extremely fine - grained and almost transparent. It was used to build some of the most important monuments of the classic period such as, Ermis of Praxitelis, Niki of Samothrakis, and the forefront of the temple of Delphi. The quarries are located between Parikia, Agio Mina and Naoussa.

Paros has also given birth to many enlightened minds of the ancient times like the great poet Arhilohos who is considered to be of equal to Homer and the sculptors Skopas, Aristionas and Agorakritos.
