Syros is often referred as “A Mistress of the Aegean Sea” and “A jewel island of the Cyclades”. An unforgettable experience due to the glorious history, the unique sights, the special architecture, the beautiful beaches, the local traditional products and of course the hospitality. A combination that will justify your choice of Syros, with lifelong memories.
Syros is filled with marble cobblestones, stunning squares, incredible neoclassical buildings, religious monuments, well-maintained gardens, majestic mansions, whitewashed traditional houses, all of which create a harmonious atmosphere.
Syros was also a naval, industrial and cultural centre of the Greek State.
The beaches of the island will give you the sense of paradise. Beaches with crystal clear blue waters and golden sand. Depending on your mood you can choose the south side of the island with the most famous and organized beaches for a more upbeat environment, or the north side with secluded beaches and a more laid back vibes.
