Our recent travels in Greece involved an eleven-day road trip from Athens to the Epirus region of northwestern Greece, down the southwestern coast of Peloponnese, across Messinia to our summer house on the coast of southeastern Peloponnese, and finally back to Athens. When in the Epirus region, we made our home base in the city of Ioannina and took day trips to the coastal town of Parga and to various mountain villages surrounding Ioannina.
Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite blue doors (and an eye-catching blue staircase) from Parga.
A pink arrow on this brilliant blue door points the way to Carte Postale, a cocktail bar where visitors can enjoy their favorite drink overlooking Parga’s marina. Looks inviting, doesn’t it?
This salmon-colored house with its lovely rustic blue door needs a little tender-loving-care. Can you find it among the waterfront row of houses and restaurants in the picture below?
A striking blue staircase leads up the hill from the waterfront to a narrow street filled with tourist shops. I know, it’s not a door, but I couldn’t resist including it along with my favorite blue doors. After all, blue is the classic color of Greece.
Parga (Πάργα) is a seaside town located in the Epirus region of northwestern Greece. A popular tourist destination, Parga lies on the Ionian coast between the cities of Preveza and Igoumenitsa and is about a five-hour drive from Athens. The main attractions in the colorful town of Parga are a historical Venetian castle overlooking the town, a good variety of shops and tavernas, as well as, several beaches.
