Hey guys,

Am looking to spend 3 weeks in Paros - Ios area this August. Anyone know nice places to stay etc? Is it going to be too crowded, hot, expensive - should I go to Turkey?

i have visited paros twice last summer!!
i am from greece actually!!
when it comes to the place,it depends on what you are looking for!!
its got nice transportation!buses from paroikia to nausaoperaste still 5 in the morning,so that people from other
places can go clubbing easily!!
nausa is much more prettier than paroikia!i sugget u to stay there!!
piqturesque villages with a viewing vista of aigean sea...
nightlife is amazing!!!however,during august nausa is overcrowded...but there are many more peaceful tavernas as well,
with live traditional music!
the first time i stayed in a camping in paroikia!it is called "koula"and is just 500m from the main port!
it was clean,safe and we were charged 5 euro a day(each of us)...
some friends of mine have stayed ina nother campinsite in nausa,which has a swimming pool an d little wooden huts for the same price....
however u can stay in a hotel!there is a wide range of categories!if u book soon u can find a nice room with its own bathroom for 30 euro(per person)..
in punda u may find others which are even chepaer.
when u reach the port of paros,some hoteliers may try to offer u accomodation!u can negotiate the price!
if u are lookin for something less overcrowded u should spend two days in paros and then visit adiparos,its only 40 minutes from paros...and its a real paradise!!
from my point of view,if u are planning to visit greece,u should stay in athens for some days and then book a ferry for Syros!Syros is 3,5 hours from pireaus(the port which is closer to athens).it has an amazing architectural style,tones of greek is traditional and magic..(thats perhaps the most brilliant place i would choose to spend my whole life if i could)whatever u choose,i wish u to have a really nice time!!:-))))))))))))

have a nice time

oh!and when it comes to ios,its much like paros.actually paros is mor ebeautiful!
ios is more expensiive,since there are less hotels...
a friend of mine has just dooked a hotel for 48 euro a day..and it was the cheeaper she managed to find...
both destinations attract fellows(students,youth people in general)!
many italians visit ios every summer,who are usualy most people are :-)
while in paros the situation is more moderated!
