Car Rental at Paros Airport
Paros Airport has been in operation since 1982. The airport is located 9 km away from Parikia, which is the mainland and port of the island, and only a few minutes drive by car from the car rental company Thessaloniki Car Rental.
The airport started operating without a surfaced runway and with only a small building. In 1985 it became the surfaced runway and then, in 1987, came the modernization of the terminal. From Athens, there are daily flights to the airport of Paros. During the summer months, however, the frequencies obviously increase. The future plans of the airport are the expansion of the runway and the reconstruction of a new terminal. At the airport, you will find facilities, such as an information desk, café, and banking. With reference to parking your rental car from the car rental company Thessaloniki Car Rental, it’s free.
Passengers arriving at the airport are offered the option of hourly bus service and the journey to the town of Parikia is approximately fifteen minutes, while to the cosmopolitan Naoussa is up to twenty-five minutes. Alternatively, you can use taxis for your transfer, which are waiting at the airport. Generally, the route to Parikia costs about fifteen euros. The quickest and cheapest way to get around is a cheap car rental from Thessaloniki Car Rental.
Paros is an island that will satisfy most visitors as a destination. It has wonderful beaches, romantic sunsets, and delicious local cuisine. Start with swimming at one of the most popular beaches on the island, such as Kolimbithres. There, you will find crystal clear waters and impressive rock formations that create small creeks. You will also find a golden sandy beach at Faraggas. It is divided into three bays and the third is a beach without beach bars. If you still want an organized beach with shallow waters and a beach bar then you will probably like Monastiri beach. Other beaches you can go to with your rental car are Chrysi Akti, Logaras, Santa Maria, and Langeri.
In Parikia, in the old town, you can take a walk and admire some neoclassical mansions that are located there, as well as some bridges. Somewhere there is Panagia Ekatontapyliani. A church of the 4th century AD which is said to have been built by St. Helen. Going up to the Castle you will be able to have a fantastic view of the Aegean and enjoy your drink. If you are a fan of nightlife, we recommend Naoussa and its cobbled streets.
In Paros, you will taste excellent food, made from pure ingredients. Chickpeas with onions and tomatoes are a favorite dish on the island and worth a try. Of course, you will also find fresh fish cooked with vegetables, as well as sun-dried salted fish. We suggest, to accompany your food with some local wine of Paros. The island also produces many varieties of cheeses such as Ladotiri cheese, Kefalotyri, and Xinomizithra. Residents also make their own local tsipouro called Suma.
