Paros was the birthplace of the Pictorial Guide of the Cyclades in 2012, it's the island where we have stopped every year since 2006, and the one where we created the largest number of 360° projects.

We created virtual strolls in Parikia, Naoussa, Drios, Chrysi Akti and Ambelas, featuring virtual tours of local companies that we personally recommend.

We have also made countless shots in Lefkes, Kostos, Kolybithres, Piso Livadi and many other fascinating places. Enjoy!

Nestled on the slope of the mountain above Parikia, it's a dream spot to admire the sunset. This monastery is still active and is not permanently open. Appropriate clothing and respectful attitude are of course required.
Cape Agios Fokas closes Parikia Bay to the north. Superb church, nice little beaches, panoramic view of Parikia and tranquility (neither bar nor tavern in the immediate vicinity).

A very good restaurant in Ambelas, a seaside destination on the east coast of Paros, a few kilometers southeast of Naoussa.
