Any good reccomendation for a good reasonable well located hotel (max E80) in Paros? Should i choose a hotel in Parikia or Naoussa?
We stayed at the Sunset View Hotel - http://www.sunsetview-paros.com - in Parikia. Naoussa is a lovely village and a popular accommodation choice too. It really depends what you're after. The Sunset View is not in the main town but just a short stroll from it. So you have peace and quiet but still the convenience of several shops, bars and restaurants. This is why I would choose Parikia over Naoussa. I might add that the Sunset has fabulous views. In any event it's all good. If you're after a rental car I used Aphrodite on the Parikia waterfront. I hired a Fiat Seicento with a sunroof and had a lot of fun. I was pleased with their car, their honesty and service. Have fun you lucky so and so!
Definetely Naousa over Paroikia! I cannot reccomend any hotels as i have always stayed at friends houses but there are plenty of hotels around the area.
Naousa is only a 15 min drive from Paroikia and the roads, although narrow are pretty good. Best beaches are closer to Naoussa and also Naoussa itself is very beautiful with loads of nice restaurants/bars/clubs and shops! It gets extremely busy during the end of July and August and also you will find that prices rise as well around that period
Personally i find Naoussa nicer but Paroikia is nice as well and has some nice bars and restaurants, although some of them are more touristy and also because of the Port it can get very busy with traffic.
Hope this helps!
Travel Tips for Paros
The church of Panagia Ekatontapiliani
The most famous and oldest church of Paros is the Church of Panagia Ekatontapiliani (Our Lady of the Hundreds Gates) or Katapoliani, which is also considered as one of the most important Byzantine Monuments of Greece.
Located in the capital of Paros, Parikia, the church is believed to be miraculous and every year, thousands of Pilgrims visit it for its celebration, on the 15th of August.
Panagia Ekantontapiliani was built on the site of an older cross shaped wooden basilica which was destroyed, nobody knows exactly why. The new church built there had beautiful vaults and domes but was hit by many catastrophes all over the centuries, creating great damages.
In its interior, the church has a beautiful cross-shaped baptistery, wonderful sculptural decorations, fine post-Byzantine icons, astonishing marble-carved iconostasis and more.

There Are Worse Places For A Layover...
This was quite literally just a late afternoon/early evening stopover whilst waiting for the overnight ferry back to Pireaus giving me just enough time to have a quick wander round the main town and port of Pariokia, a bite to eat and to buy my ferry ticket.
First impressions tho' were all good: a neat well-kept, not overly developed, small town with some interesting little shops and restaurants radiating off the main square. Friendly locals, a decent fish dinner at Argonauta and in early June not too touristy - suited me fine:)
Just a shame I had to leave so soon ;(
