Parga

A town steeped in history, Parga is as much a Greek holiday destination as an international resort. Built around its prominent Venetian Citadel perched on the promontory between two bays, the town has all you’d expect of a moderate size resort with a wide range of restaurants and plenty of narrow winding streets to explore.

The castle itself should not be missed and offers great views as well as being a good way to work up an appetite.

Although the main town, centred on the east bay has now expanded to fill much of the beach lined west bay, the development has not reached the western harbour so you can escape the bustle of town and retreat to more tranquil surroundings for the night. If you can’t be bothered to walk, there’s a water taxi between the town and harbour.

On offer are all the facilities you’d expect including banks, and ATM’s as well as plenty of places for provisions.
