Parga

Parga is a popular resort town on the Ionian seaside. Its history dates back to 13 century and the town symbol is the fortress which soars on a rock above the sea. The bay of Parga is very beautiful, with small coves and a few islets in the sea. The town is built amphitheatrically and almost all buildings provide view to the sea.

Parga has a nice promenade along the port and its center abounds in cafes, restaurants and shops, especially shops for hand-made leather products. The central part is closed for cars and the small and narrow streets look like a labyrinth. For this reason, parking inside Parga during the summer season is a bit difficult, if the hotel does not provide it. There is one free public parking and one paid. Many of the hotels are in the outskirts of Parga or along the main road, and the resort is much visited by tourists of any nationality.

Parga has three beaches - Valtos, which is very long, Krioneri (next to the port) and the small beach of Piso Krioneri. Lichnos beach which is 4 km awayis also considered a beach of Parga, although it is 4 km away. In the area there are many other beaches which are worth a visit.

Except for the fortress of Parga, other interesting things to see in the region are the waterfalls of the near village of Anthoussa and the fortress of Ali Pasha on the top of a hill, with panoramic view of the entire coastline. Organized boat trips to Paxos, Antipaxos and the beaches around depart from the port of Parga om a daily basis.
