Shopping in Paros

Many of the best shops on Paros are found in Naoussa, the most stylish town on the island, and Parikia, the capital. In addition to the boutiques listed below, it’s worth visiting the Moraitis Winery to pick up a bottle or two of its excellent Parian wines. You may also wish to buy some pungent local herbs — especially oregano and thyme — which will brighten your cooking once you get home. (Just make sure they’re packed in air-tight glass containers to satisfy the curiosity of U.S. Customs officials.)
