Let’s talk numbers, starting with less expensive meals. Additionally, in this point we would like to emphasize that numbers in this article are not standard. First of all, a simple souvlakia (gyros) costs less than 3€. Two of them are enough for an average man to be considerate as full meal. Regarding restaurants and taverns, prices vary. In a seafood tavern you will need about 25€/person, including beverages. However, if you will choose an expensive wine the price will be different. Additionally, the price might be higher if you order more expensive products. In prestigious and famous restaurants prices will be higher but justified.
Meat dishes are cheaper than seafood, not only in Paros but everywhere. Therefore, a portion of e.g. steak, which is accompanied by potatoes, cost about 15€. Because of the fact that Paros is an island for everyone, prices here are normal like on other Cycladic island. Additionally, we propose that you take a walk among alleys and look at the prices on the menu. The menu of every restaurant and tavern is presented at the entrance.
There is no doubt that if you wish to explore all the amazing places of Paros with comfort, you will need your own mean of transport. Do not miss understand us, if you use just the bus, you will still see it all. However, to get to e.g. Molos beach without walking, you will need a car. So, is Paros expensive regarding car and scooter rental? The prices on our island are probably the same as on other islands. So, depending on the season, a simple car with manual transmission costs between 30€ and 60€. However a scooter costs between 20€ and 40€.
We hope that our article presented you a better picture regarding the question if Paros Island is expensive.
