Get to Paros

Arriving at Paros; selecting the best route

Starting the planning with the standard traveling procedures is the easiest way to go. Paros is one of the most popular Greek destinations and this is greatly facilitated by its National Airport and the busy ferry port of Parikia town.

By plane: For travelers who prefer a fast and tranquil route, a flight to the capital of Athens and a transit flight to Paros are highly recommended. The airport is located about 10 km from the Parian capital. Also, a direct flight to Mykonos or Santorini is recommended since Paros is only a short ferry ride away.

By ferry: Alternatively, for travelers who want to experience more during their journey, a ferry route from the Athenian ports (Piraeus or Rafina - depending on the selected travel date) is the best option. The port of Parikia is frequented daily by ferries from Athens and the Aegean islands, bustling with travelers throughout the visiting season. Most ferries boast passenger cabins and vehicle garage space for an additional fee, with superfast vessels being the main exception. Most ferry companies provide e-tickets, facilitating the boarding process.
