Paros Island, Greece

Paros Island, Greece has contributed to Hellenistic culture for nearly 3,000 years. The Venus de Milo and furnishings of the Acropolis were sculpted from the snow-white Parian marble, highly prized by the ancients and sourced from the island’s coveted mines. Today, the sandy beaches of the Aegean Sea are the perfect destination for those with a more renaissance lifestyle: windsurfing under azure skies, exploring the Byzantine-era “Church of the Hundred Doors,” and aperitifs in a local ouzo tavern. The Cycladic architectural style of flat roofs, whitewashed walls, and blue-painted doors and shutters remain an eye-catching feature prevalent of these picturesque towns.
