The Αtlantis Hotel is situated in the beautiful town of Naoussa on the island of Paros. As well as having a wonderful view of the little fishing harbour it is only a stone’s throw away from the centre of Naoussa. From the harbour you can easily be transported by taxi boats to Naoussa’s fantastic beaches, such as Kolimpithres, Monastiri etc.
You have not really seen Paros if you haven’t walked the white-washed cobblestone alleys of the Old Town in Naoussa which lead to its picturesque port. A trademark of Paros’ identity and local architecture, these little, narrow maze-like passages may be peaceful and quiet during the hot summer mornings, but as soon as the night comes they team with people and life. Take the opportunity to sit in one of the numerous bars and restaurants that place their tables outside to enjoy the island vibe and indulge into some people-watching.
The Archeological Museum of Paros can be found behind Panagia Ekatontapyliani in Parikia. Its collections date from the Neolithic period to early Christianity. Even though this is not a big museum it includes some important exhibits, like the 6th century BC marble statue of Gorgon, the 490BC colossal worship statue of Artemis, and a neolithic figurine of a woman sitting with crossed legs with her hands under her chest.
The natural, unspoiled rock formations that are a great sample of Cycladic beauty are one. The walking paths that introduce you to the beautiful nature on the island all year round are another. If you visit during the summer you should definitely have a swim at the gorgeous beach of Monastiri (AiYannis), or watch a film for free under the stars at the open movie theater Cine Enastron. During the yearly festival of the Park (June-October) a number of jazz, classical music and traditional Greek concerts and fascinating cultural events also take place. The Cycladic monastery of Ai Yiannis Detis and the Museum of the Park with the permanent historic exhibition ‘The Island of Paros through the Russian cartography 1770-1774’ are also well worth a visit.
Lefkes is a picturesque mountain village in Paros that is famous for its traditional character. Lefkes had been the first capital of Paros which was built by immigrants from Crete and locals who were looking for protection against pirate attacks. It is built in an amphitheatre shape with many beautiful, neoclassic buildings, quirky little passages and charming ‘hidden’ cafés where you can enjoy the architecture. Lefkes is also known for its tavernas, such as taverna Klarinos, that specialise in delicious grilled meats.
