How can I travel there from abroad?

Even though Paros boasts an airport, it is not an international one. In fact, it only receives direct flights from Athens. Therefore, to reach the island, you should take a flight to the International Airport of Athens first. After arriving in Athens, you have two options; you can either take a domestic flight to Paros or take a ferry from Piraeus Port or Rafina Port.

How can I travel there from Athens?

You can take a direct flight from the International Airport of Athens or a ferry from a port of Athens (Piraeus or Rafina).
Ferries from Piraeus depart daily throughout the year.

How can I travel there from Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos, and other islands?

The ferry is the only means of transport that can take you to Paros from another island. There are no direct flights to the island to get there by plane, so if you plan on reaching the island by plane, you have to make a stop at Athens first. Find the best ferry schedules!
