Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Paros lies in the Aegean Sea, to the west of the island of Naxos from which it is separated by a channel that is around 8 km wide. The island is 160 km to the south east of the Port of Piraeus. Historically known for its fine white marble, which gave rise to the term 'Parian' to describe marble or china of similar qualities, the marble mines and quarries have now been abandoned and can be found around the island. Today, the island's principal source of income is derived from tourism. The capital of Paros, Parikia, is a typically beautiful Cycladic village with whitewashed houses and lovely grand neoclassical mansions. Standing atop a hill in the centre of the village is a 13th century Venetian castle which provides glorious views of the town and surrounding area. There is also an important ecclesiastical attraction in the town in the form of the 6th century Church of Panayia Ekatontapyliani, also known as Katapoliani.
The island's port is also in Parikia and hosts both conventional ferries and high speed ferries. Ferries generally depart to Piraeus and to the other islands of the Cyclades.
The Greek island of Amorgos is located in the Cyclades group of islands and has many popular visitor attractions which includes the Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, to the north east of Chora. Located on the edge of a cliff, the monastery was built in the early part of the second millennium in order to protect a religious icon that dates back to 812 from intruders. The icon is on display inside the monastery.
There are many ancient remains dotted around the island and includes ancient towers, ancient tombs, stone tools, vases and by the walls that surround the city of Arkesini.
The island has two ports. One is in the town of Katapola, which is the main port, and the other in the town of Aegiali which is located close to the island's camp site and therefore it is popular with young people. From the ports ferries depart to the port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland, and has a crossing time of around 7 hours and 30 minutes. Amorgos is also connected to the islands of Crete, Naxos, Paros, Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Donoussa and Astypalea.
