The capital of the Cyclades, Syros is booming with culture, beauty, and of course, top-notch cuisine. As a former Venetian colony, Syros has a rich combination of cultural influences, including an exquisite Catholic cathedral. Its status as a powerhouse in the 19th century makes it stand out among other Greek islands, with its gorgeous historical architecture.
Known for their hospitality towards visitors, Syros has a calm atmosphere and never feels touristy. It’s also one of the most accessible islands in Greece, with ferries connecting to over a dozen different islands, making it a great base for visiting other islands (ever-popular Mykonos is just a day trip away). Syros is also a great spot for year-round travel. As the capital, Syros stays open well beyond the summer high season.
From the breathtaking architecture to its beautiful beaches, Syros can be the perfect island getaway for just about anyone.
