A day excursion--Naxos to Paros and back
Will be on Naxos 8 days and had a thought to do a day trip to Paros so looked at ferries

Blue Star appears the cheapest at €28 return and a morning ferry arriving 10 .30

Return would be 22.00

What could say apart from lunch and dinner on Paros a traveler do in that time

Would it be worth the almost $45 Australian to spend for it ---and I would if it was a good
days adventure

Any thoughts or opinions please

Arriving Paros 10.30am and departing from Paros at 10pm
gives around around 11hrs

Have you obtained a guidebook yet, or bookmarked a paros website, or would you rather have an hour-by-hour itinerary provided here?

Coolmover Jan 6th, 2017 08:15 PM

Itenary no
Guide book no

This is a travelers forum for and by travelers who may feel they want to share some interesting places on Paros they found

Lots of people do

Yes, but a guidebook will provide answers to questions that even you haven't thought to ask. WELL worth the investment, IMO.

Fair enough --point taken

You can also go to the tripadvisor website, find the Paros forum and click on "Things to Do" in the green strip at the top of the page.

I can do all the suggestions but gee all I hoped for was some real contact with travelers

Maybe thats a lost art --to have a real chat on line
