Paros is an island of Greece in the central Aegean Sea. One of the Cyclades island group offering beaches, small villages, churches and less tourists than Mikonos or the neighbouring Naxos.


Sights here include the Church of Ekatontapliani (one of the most important churches of the Cyclades, if not Greece as a whole), the archaeological museum and the adjacent Butterfly Valley.

From Pros, one can easily set off for one of the other islands or explore the rest of the island. Naoussa is a also a fishing port with an interesting Venetian castle. Paros offers some interesting little towns and sightseeing spots, but the main reason for choosing this island is of course to spend some time on one of the beaches and indulge in wind surfing, scuba diving and horse riding after the exploration of cities like Athens or Delphi.
