Start your holiday in Parga with a walk to Ali Pasha castle. This hilltop, Venetian castle is well worth the climb, just for the stunning views across the town. Explorers will also enjoy wandering the cobbled streets of the old town, where you can find a variety of shops, bars and tavernas. If you’re visiting Parga during the summer, find your favourite beach to cool off on. Lichnos Beach offers white sand and clear, turquoise waters, while Valtos Beach is one of the best places in Parga for water sports.

Pull on your most comfortable footwear and trek through stunning orchards and olive groves to Ali Pasha Castle. Situated on a hilltop overlooking the town, making the climb to this Venetian castle is one of the most popular things to do in Parga. There are several eateries on route should you need to stop and take a break. Remember to bring your camera to capture the stunning views over the town, and keep an eye out for the famously ‘secret’ passageway to the sea.

Weather & Climate

Summer is the most popular time to visit Parga. Temperatures typically climb into the 30s (°C) or even the 40s, so sunscreen is a must. For slightly cooler weather, come in spring or autumn, when you can expect fewer crowds, plenty of sunny days and average temperatures in the mid-teens. Rainfall picks up in the winter, but the weather's still mild. Temperatures rarely fall below 9°C during the season. 

Getting Around

By taxi boat: For easy transport to Lichnos and Valtos Beach, hop on a local taxi boat from the harbour. Boats run every day and return tickets cost under 10 euros. 

By scooter: For a more scenic tour of Parga, zip through the town on a hired scooter. There are rental companies at the town centre. 


Religious Festival: On the 15 August each year, locals light up Panagia Islet with fireworks, music and food, in honour of the the Holy Virgin. 

Kanaria Festival: The highlight of Parga’s cultural celebrations, this folk festival is held to observe the return of Pargians to the homeland after their extradition in the 19th century. Locals return to Panagia Island in spectacularly decorated boats, where they're greeted with fireworks, live music and dancing. 

Lampatines: Culture seekers won’t want to miss this traditional festival on the 24 June, when locals celebrate St. John the Baptist with traditional dances and the lighting of fires in the neighbourhoods.
