If you are not the spontaneous type now is also a good time to plan for 2015. Most accommodation providers had a good year in 2014 and are now taking bookings for next year. So popular places and dates will go early. See our private villa collection for one, two, three, or four bedroom villas
The big event in my personal Paros life is our painting workshop in June 2015. Any and all painters are welcome for a first class experience with instructor Crystal Beshara
Finally, yoga workshops on Greek islands are becoming more and more popular. Now is the time to talk to your yoga instructor about escorting a group to Greece. We make all the arrangements; they do all the yoga.
Please comment or send photo of what you have enjoyed in Pireaus.

Unless you are already on Paros or on the way there it is too late to enjoy the authentic Greek experiences of Easter for this year. So I would like to whet your appetite for next year. Easter in Greece is like no other country. It is the major holiday of the year. While based on the religious calendar it is centered around food and drink. Read my 2014 article on Opinions Post.
If you want more, here is our account from 2006. Or search this blog for several other posts on the holiday and the season. If you would like a personalized package of accommodation, event guide and lamb barbecue with a local Greek family, contact me.
P.S. I have often preached that it is a crime against humanity to visit Greece without seeing the Parthenon. For those who have not yet made the trip here is unique interactive helicopter tour: http://greece.greekreporter.com/2013/11/18/the-parthenon-like-you-ve-never-seen-it-before/
For those who would like to know more about all the major antiquity sites of ancient Greece tour my web site www.Visit-Ancient-Greece.com
Paros has long been a popular place for weddings. This May Day will see that popularity multiply fifty fold. The island is hosting a group wedding for 50 couples from China. The ceremony will be followed by traditional Greek food, music and dance. I wonder which Chinese traditions will be observed.
