Favorite thing: The beach of Krioneri is the town beach of Parga - not the best place to sunbathe but popular with the locals and from here you can swim out to the rocky islands with the Mother of Mary Church quite easily - although I never quite got round to this. Behind the beach are numerous tavernas and cafes - really quite spoilt for choice for lunch and dinners.
Favorite thing: May was a lovely time to visit Parga, not too crowded, not too hot although plenty hot enough for my fair skin). The spring flowers added to the colourful spectacle of Parga and indeed these bottle brush plants were in evidence all around town - hadn't seen this flower before but I can understand how it gets its name!
Favorite thing: Just a bit further round from Krioneri Beach is Piso Krioneri - small beach. Quite rocky here but picturesque, small and secluded with a friendly taverna just behind. Watch out too for the fogs in the stream at the side here too - they were making quite a noise when we were here - couldn't make out a t first what it was such a strange noise. Don't get too close or attempt to kiss one in the hope of a Greek Prince as apparently their saliva is toxic
A must if you ever have the pleasure of going to Parga is not only the twon and uts wonderful setting, but also enjoy a trip to Acheron Springs the views and the idyllic setting will amaze you!
Fondest memory: The view of the harbour in the evening time is beautiful especially looking down from the restaurants on the hillside.
I know it was very early in the season, but everywhere was beautifully tidy and clean. I wonder what it's like in peak season?
Fondest memory: Walking the clean streets, climbing the steps from this end of Parga up to the castle. I met lots of black kittens here that I had to stop and talk to.
THE VIEWS THAT CAN BE TAKEN FROM THE HILLS ABOVE PARGA,SHOW THIS LITTLE TOWN IN A SETTING THAT IS HARD TO BEAT.
Fondest memory: WALKING ALONG VOLTOS BEACH AS THE SUN CAME UP.
