A trip to enjoy the island atmosphere, relax and learn the history of three of the most important islands of the Greek archipelago.
The journey begins in Athens, where you will have three days to explore the modern city, the historic center, important museums and the Acropolis.
The trip continues in Paros, a well known island for the Monastery of Panagia Ekatontapiliani, the gulf of Naoussa with the Kolimbithres beach and its cosmopolitan life. Parikia, Paros’ capital, is a charming village with little hermitages lost in its narrow streets and windmills in the harbor. From the village of Pounta, in the south of Parikia, leave boats to the neighboring island of Antiparos, a small island with very few inhabitants and very beautiful beaches. Naoussa is the most picturesque village of Paros; white and cubic houses, cosmpolitan atmosphere and people strolling through its narrow whitewashed streets. Near Naoussa is the beach of Kolimpithres, formed by immense rocks of strange forms that resemble sculptures nailed in the sand. Other beautiful villages are the ancient capital of Paros, Lefkes and Marpisa, a traditional village with dozens of churches, its Venetian castle and a monastery of the sixteenth century.
Paros is ideal for water sports. Punda is the beach where Kite Surfing is practiced and on the Tserdakia, Chrisi Akti, Santa Maria beaches surfers from all over the world gather to practice windsurfing. Other beautiful beaches are Livadia, Krios, Agios Fokas, Mikro Piperi, Megalo Piperi, Limnes, Aliki and Piso Livadi.
Next comes Naxos, the largest of the Cyclades islands and the island famous for its beaches. You will love the medieval castle of Chora, the mainland villages and the endless sandy beaches with crystal clear waters.
Naxos is the ideal island to enjoy the sea, from there you can reach by boat the paradisiac islands Koufonisia, small islands with hidden coves, accessible only by sea. Water sports lovers can practice their favorite sport on one of the organized beaches and for those who love trekking, the interior of Naxos with its mountainous villages is ideal for walking, horseback riding or cycling.
