Overview

Introduction

Syros' past importance and historical wealth is reflected in its imposing main town of Ermoupolis, the capital of the Cyclades, which boasts many neoclassical mansions (mostly former sea captain residences), elegant squares, numerous churches and municipal buildings. The museum is worth a visit as the island's human settlement dates back some 5000 years. 

The town is divided into two parts, although today, for all intents and purposes, they can be viewed as one. Ermoupolis and its neighbour Ano Syros are built around two hills, one topped with an Orthodox cathedral, the other with a Catholic cathedral.

Away from the town there are villages and good sandy beaches to explore, the most well known being Galissas which has a small resort behind. All are served by an excellent bus network making independent exploration inexpensive and easy.

We like Syros a lot and think that, like Tinos nearby, it has been rather unfairly overlooked by foreign visitors.

Getting to Syros

Flight to Mykonos from Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton, Manchester (other regional ?ghts may be available). Ferry transfers available. Syros can also be served via Athens and Syros also has a domestic flight from Athens most days, but this will normally involve an overnight in Athens in one direction.

Multi-Centre Options

Kythnos, Serifos, Sifnos, Milos and Folegandros are easy to combine as are Andros and Tinos. Other than from Kythnos they also have high speed ferry connections to the Eastern Cyclades (Santorini, Ios) plus in season (early June to midSeptember) Naxos, Paros, Amorgos and Koufonissi.

Representative

We do not employ our own representatives on these islands and transfers are unescorted. Our hotels should be able to give any information required. We do have a local agent on most islands for assistance and also our main agents in Athens can always be contacted if required.

Those of our clients who have, over the last 20 or so years, visited Tolon in the Peloponnese will know Jackie; our very knowledgeable and passionate representative. Having decided to return to the UK, she has joined our reservations team and, needless to say, knows Tolon, a resort we have featured since 1973, inside out. It will come as no surprise to know that the Peloponnese is her favourite region in Greece.
