Paros may not be the Greek island your friends told you to go to, but there's a good chance you will
have as much fun here as you could have had in Mykonos
and you will still be able to afford to buy some
gifts for your family without using
the credit card you were saving for
emergencies. Paros has year round daily ferry connections from Pireaus and is on the same ferry route with Santorini and Naxos which makes it the most logical island to visit with those islands. In the summer there are daily connections with most of the other Cyclades Islands as well as Crete. A large year-round foreign community make Paros a good choice for those who want to live on a Greek island and for those who want to come in the off-season and know that there will be restaurants,
cafes and shops open and people to talk to. And the restaurants in Paros are among the best in Greece as are the beaches and the nightlife in the summer. And with Paros you get 2 islands for the price of one: the island of Antiparos is a 10 minute ferry ride away.
