At the heart of autumn, the Cycladic nature reveals its dazzling charm in the absence of the overwhelming summer crowds, allowing its visitors to uncover hidden gems of impeccable beauty. Paros, in particular, stands out as an ideal destination during this fascinating time of year, especially for those seeking to explore beautiful and idyllic
landscapes far from the hustle and bustle of the summer.
THE CELEBRATION OF THE NATIONAL HOLIDAY ON THE 28TH OF OCTOBER IS THE IDEAL MOMENT TO VISIT THE ISLAND, AS THE FESTIVE AND CHEERFUL ATMOSPHERE INVITES VISITORS TO DISCOVER THE TRUE COLOURS OF THIS MAGNIFICENT LAND.
This important day, simultaneously marked by proud celebration and solemn commemoration, also known as OXI Day (“No” Day), holds a special place in the Greek calendar as it signifies the heroic resistance of the Greek army against the Axis powers during World War II.
Experience the festivities like a true local through the morning parade of students marching through the main streets of the island. Local philharmonic bands accompany the participants filling the air with celebratory melodies and rousing marches. Make the most of the rest of the day and wander around the picturesque alleys, admiring the iconic churches
with their blue rooftops. Blend in with the locals while discovering an unspoiled and rarely seen side of Paros, brilliantly contradicting its cosmopolitan summer spirit.
Cultural tourism lovers will have a unique chance to partake in various activities or visit folklore museums, delving deep into the glorious past of this historic island and exploring its monumental archaeological sites.
Enjoy the season’s mild weather and temperate climate and take advantage of it to the maximum for outdoor activities in the island’s beautiful nature, such as hikes through the mountains or picturesque strolls by the beach. As the sun still warms the shores, make sure you pack your bathing suit and you will be sure to find the perfect opportunity for a
drip in Parian waters, further proof that summer is a state of mind!
