Lefkes...200 meters above sea level.
Lefkes is inland from Parikia, about thirty minutes away by bus. A good way to see the interior, and if you want to visit the beach, stay on the bus and continue to Pisa Livadi, which is located on the east side of the island of Paros. Be aware that the bus fills to capacity with beach bound tourists in the morning, and does the same on the return trip late in the afternoon.
Lefkes is a beautiful little village, rather dull, no real outstanding features other than beautiful churches such as Holy Trinity, which is built entirely out of Paros white marble. Worth the visit if you have additional time to spare while on the islands.
Shopping consists primarily of local crafts such as pottery and woven goods, and take notice of the interesting landscape as you wander about, with the usual stone buildings, piazzas, and narrow well kept streets. (see my Lefkes Travel page)
We did not find any restaurants that we would recommend, however more time spent in that regard should find acceptable dining.
We observed one elderly gentleman rolling oranges down the centre of the street, in anticipation that the orange would round the bend and continue on down the hill. Possibly in training for the upcoming Olympics...
He got quite a chuckle out of Ma Kettle and I taking his picture, and continued his sport long after he ran out of ammunition.
We have no intention of returning to Lefkes, unless we have a vehicle at our disposal for a timely departure when interest dwains.
