Paros is a unique destination. Voted the best island in Europe for 2020 by Travel + Leisure Magazine, it has something for everyone: natural beauty, ancient history, unspoiled beaches, Greek traditions, local festivals, and authentic village life. Located in the heart of the Cyclades Islands, Paros is also an ideal gateway to explore many nearby islands! Join local expert Kapi Panou to learn all about this must-see Greek island.

The low mountains of Paros fade gently into the coastline while the gentle winds blow just enough to refresh us from the summer heat. Natural beauty abounds on the sheltered beaches while the traditional villages welcome visitors to experience their authentic daily routines. Nearby archaeological sites illustrate the island’s long history. The whitewashed local houses contrast with the blue sky and turquoise water. Le Corbusier, who experienced the Cyclades, has said that “whatever architecture had to say it said it here.”

Historically, Paros is not only connected with the famous gleaming white marble of classical art, but with Byzantium as well. Two Byzantine emperors, Constantine the Great and Justinian, built the unrivaled Ekatontapyliani Church, a unique monument. The cultural routes of the Aegean intersect here with the routes of the pirates, the Crusaders, and the Venetians.

In Paros, you realize that the Cycladic essence is about enjoying what’s in front of you, living in the moment, and making the most of your time right now. This is epitomized in the local eating habits and daily rituals. They are human-centric and humanistic. Be more Cycladic. Be happy!

Led by Kapi Panou an expert on Greek heritage, this interactive seminar will be a journey into the Greek islands to explore Paros and beyond. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will live the myth of Paros and will be presented with ideas for nearby island escapes.
