Athens, the country's capital, is situated 150 miles (241 kilometers) southwest of Parakila.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the wider personality of a region. So try to set aside some time to savour North Aegean Islands' other natural and man-made attractions. Pirgi Thermis and Apidias Lakkos are just two of the many other places worth checking out while you're in North Aegean Islands.
Get some transportation head to Lesvos, a major city for the region, some 12 miles (19 kilometers) away from Parakila. The place offers plenty of tourist attractions, such as Molyvos Castle, Molyvos Harbour and Anaxos Beach. Petrified Forest, Teriade Museum and Plomari Beach are just a sample of the other attractions in Lesvos.
For a glimpse into the spiritual life of Parakila, why not head to the area's many monasteries. Travelers in North Aegean Islands often head to the area's open-air exhibits.
Be sure to throw in walking shoes and spend a few hours with an expert local guide on one of the city walking tours and winery tours.
At the end of your holiday in Parakila, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your euros on last-minute souvenirs, and bid a fond Yiá sou (farewell) to this unique holiday spot.
