Paros, Greece – Part II & Antiparos

Here are a few more pictures I took during out time on this lovely little island.  I’m no photographer, but for those who are it is a photographer’s paradise.

Neighbouring island Antiparos, a seven minute ferry ride away, is also worth a stroll.  You can take your car on the ferry for the princely sum of eight euro.  Apparently Antiparos is the home of the “money set” with many of the seriously rich holding property there.  No ferry ride for them, its usually helicopters or charter jets.  Another charming little spot, one of its real jewels is an amazing cave – it was discovered several hundred years ago, but who knows how old the rock formations actually are.  It is at the top of a hill, and if you have a car you can drive straight up to the very nondescript entry.  There are a lot of stairs, and its a long way down, but absolutely amazing.

Back in the main village of Antiparos, needing some energy replenishment after all those stairs, we stopped at a great bakery which also did unexpectedly good gelato.

We loved our time in Paros and neighbouring Antiparos; there several islands that make up Greece, and it was a very ‘tough’ decision on which one we would stay at, and I think we ended up somewhere pretty fabulous.  And that little propellored plane I mentioned – we caught it back to Athens.  It was time for the next leg of our trip, Milan.
