About Syros

Syros is an important Greek Island of the Cyclades. Located in the Aegean Sea, 145 kilometres south-east of Athens, it is perhaps one of the most unspoilt Greek tourist islands. Syros is enchanting and steeped in history, with secluded beaches, ancient churches and an unrivalled industrial heritage. Island treasures can be discovered by the old harbour, in the capital Ermoupoli and in the hillside town of Ano Syros.

The most visited area of Syros is Ermoupoli, the capital city, renowned for its charming Venetian architecture and bustling port. Muted pastel coloured houses cascade down the hillside like a waterfall. A famous ship-building city, the port was once the leading commercial and industrial centre of Greece. Unmissable landmarks include Cathedral of Saint Nicholas, the fascinating Industrial Museum, and the Archaeological Museum of Syros. Plateia Miaouli, the main square, has the town hall as its focal point. Lined with palm trees, restaurants and cafes, it offers the perfect spot for alfresco dining. High on the hillside, the ancient village of Ano Syros transports visitors to the Greece of old. Blue shuttered whitewashed houses, narrow alleyways and traditional craft shops tempt travellers to discover more. At the highest point lies the Cathedral of Saint George. Inside, chandeliers dangle elegantly from the ceilings, and decorative frescoes line the walls and ceilings. The views from the cathedral grounds are spectacular. Look out to the blue Aegean and over the city imagining life in ancient Greece.

It is possible to reach Syros via mainland ferries and hydrofoil services. Daily trips operate from Piraeus, Athens, with a journey time of around four hours. The islands of Mykonos and Tinos are less than one hour away by boat. Once on the island, the capital, Ermoupoli, is easy to navigate on foot. Hiring a car, scooter or motorbike is recommended for independent travel further afield. Taxis and regular bus services are available.

The history of Syros dates back over 5,000 years. It was said to have been the home to philosopher Pherecydes, teacher of Pythagoras. Two cities dominated the island then. Ermoupoli and a city on the west coast which is now the beach resort of Galissas. The island offered great trading routes to passing ships and founded the Greek Steamship Company in 1856. The country’s impressive industrial heritage and fascinating history can still be found in and around Ermoupoli, Galissas and Ano Syros today.
