Relax and legends

Each greek island has boasted remarking his sunset like the best of the Aegean Sea even the whole world.
Oia, in Santorini; is the most popular because a very effective marketing job. Please, I recognize the stunning beauty of Oia sunsets.
But the reality is less exclusive and more generous, because the formidable colors of the sunsets pursued me through the Cycladic islands each day of my stay.
Here is, the sunset reflecting a warm color palette on the waters of the Paros harbour.

Marble of Paros, ancient trademark

The most prestigious marble of the ancient world is the Marble of Paros, no doubt.
When you see the sculptures made of this extraordinary stone you understand the exact meaning of this expression: Marble of Paros, stone of eternity and beauty.
The couple of the picture represents precycladic art. This is a reproduction, I bought it in 1998. Exquisite.

Reasons

There are a calm environment in Paros. This island is less cosmopolitan (and obviously less expensive) than Santorini or Mykonos, but after one week of exciting, noisy and crazy nights my bones claims for a deserved rest.
Paros is a good choice for the relax, with a very rich history, nice beaches and a delicious gastronomical offer, even if you like the clubbing or dancing youll find more than one remarkable place to do it.
But remember, Paros was done for a different reason. The olympic gods was thinking in the spirit and the flesh, of course. But in a very different way. So, relax, smell, listen, taste, and take it easy.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Calm, friendly, great views. Less expensive
  • Cons:Uh... let me think about that..
  • In a nutshell:The ancient legend of Paros is not a legend. Its the plain truth.
