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.

Visit the ruined outer walls of theis 1260 fortress, built by Venetian Duke March Sanudo of Naxos. Built from the stones and remnants of ancient buildings which once stood here, you will be able to find pieces from archaic temples of Athena.
This museum houses a collection of icons and other artefacts from the Byzantine era, and is located within the Panagia Ekatondapyliani compound.
Dating back to 326AD, the Panagia Ekatontapyliani is one of the finest church in the Cyclades. The building itself houses three very distinct churches, the large and marble carved Agios Nikolaos, the ornate Church of our Lady and the ancient Baptistery.
Located behind the Panagia Ekatontapyliani, this museum allows you to escape into the past of the islands history.
