The island of Antiparos lies just across the bay from Paros. Reached by a small ferry in only a few minutes, it otherwise takes us back to another moment in time. Known for its distinctive Cycladic beauty with white houses, cobbled streets and narrow streets devoid of vehicles, it presents a truly laid back atmosphere, more common of the Greek islands some fifty years ago. The historical center is located in the Venetian castle of Antiparos, found at the end of one of the picturesque coastal lanes. After the village itself, and a visit to the local museum, we’ll be off to St. George in the southwest of the island. From there we’ll go by Caigue to the uninhabited and dramatic islet of Despotiko, site now of an extensive archaeological dig, and from there to the sea caves and calm hidden lagoons.
