Parikia is the main old port town where all the ferry comes in and central bus station.

Parikia is the island's port and so, it’s a very busy place with many ships coming and leaving, lots of shops, buses and tourists carrying suitcases. So, for those who visit Paros to live peaceful moments enjoying the sun and the sea on a beautiful...More
We arrived by ferry after a 4 hour journey and were taken with the hustle and bustle of this very busy working port. It’s fabulous. You can get a ferry from here to almost anywhere in Greece 🇬🇷. The streets around the port are full...More
We spent a day there having fun walking through the cobblestones streets and around the port. It’s simply lovely and offers delightful shopping especially when so many things, including clothing, are on sale!
Everything was so much fun in this place!
Beautiful island, amazing food, beaches, activities, adventures, even more amazing locals.

It really depends on how long you've got available. There is a lot to see on Paros and we stayed in Parakia and really liked it - nice quaint Greek street and lovely shopping area. We visited Naoussa through the day - and it would be lovely to visit for a meal around the harbour at night and you could do this on the local buses. We also took a boat across to Anti- Paros - again beautiful and well worth a visit. I wouldn't rush a visit if you've time to get to know the town and the island. We were there in September and had great weather every day. Hope you enjoy it if you go.

From your choices I would stay in Parikia. There is much more going on and you can easily catch busses to the other towns. The island has a ring road that is 55kms long and most places are easy to reach. We saw lots of people cycling but hired a car ourselves. Paros is beautiful, you won't be disappointed
