Paros City Breaks

Paros is an island municipality of Greece, part of the Cyclades group, and can be found in the beautiful Aegean Sea. In the past, it was known for the amazing marble made in its many mines, but now these lay abandoned and the island is more famous for being the perfect holiday destination for those looking to soak up the sun. It's also the perfect place to brush up on your windsurfing skills or take a first time lesson.

However, if you would prefer to stay on the Greek mainland, we also have hotels in Athens available.
