Eastern Europe & Russia
I was there with a friend last summer and in principle we were going to stay just one day because a Greek girl told us it was an ugly and stressing island, but we finally stayed there for a week! Paros is a precious island! The cobbled streets are small, clean, and full of flowers everywhere. There's a lot of restaurants, pubs, and bars just in front of the sea, near the port and you can stay there till 3 or 4 in the morning. I stayed in the capital, Parikia, which is very beautiful and has good beaches. And then I went to Naoussa (twenty minutes by bus from Parikia) which is a charming town -- smaller than Parikia and one of the nicest places in the Cyclades. In short, I felt very pleased with
, and I'm sure you're going to feel the same.
for over twenty years and really admire this Greek island.
is a beautiful place but full of tourists who don't respect the island at all -- they shout everywhere, they just go to party, and don't appreciate the beauty that surrounds them. Mykonos could be one of the most beautiful places in the Cycladic Islands, but the noise, the filth, and massive tourism is destroying it. Besides that, prices are excessive!
… This place has to be one of the best party islands in the world. Your time here will be spent partying at the clubs all night and recovering at the beach or pool by day. Be carefull though, drinking the spirits in the clubs ain't allways what the labels say on the bottles. Stick to bottled beer.
… I visited Naxos last year, 2002, and I really enjoyed my visit there. It is a village that combines everything. Sea, mountain, antiquities, modern life, good food. Do pay a visit to Apiranthos and Filoti, beautiful mountainous villages. Visit as many of its beaches as you can. Visit the archaiological museum in the Chora of Naxos and ask permission to go out at the terrace and get a wonderful picture viewing the Chora. Try the naxian graviera (yellow cheese). If you get to Naxos, go and visit Koufonissia island too. Don't miss them!!!
… Go to Delos with the daily trips as such place is full of charm, temples, agora, and statues on an uninhabited island.
