The two elements that make it stand out are its medieval majesty coupled with its Cycladic authenticity. In Ermoupoli you will encounter colorful manors and a historic, aristocratic ambiance. It used to be an important commercial and cultural center for the Aegean and these are elements that have not left it yet.
While wandering in it you will come across Miaoulis Square, home to the City Hall and the Public Library, the Apollo Theatre, Agios Nikolaos church and the Vaporia neighborhood that still clings to its aristocratic glory. In this neighborhood you can see manors right on the wave. This image is sure to impress you and you will have the chance to dive in to the water there and enjoy your food and drink.
Going up, you will find yourself in Ano Syros, where you will see the dominant Cycladic element with the strikingly white houses and the picturesque alleys. This is the place where you can enjoy the exceptional Aegean view, visit the Markos Vamvakaris Museum and Agios Georgios’ church.
You will not be disappointed by the cuisine of the island! You simply have to try the local sausages and cheese, the pork delicacy called “louza” and Syros’s chalvadopita.
Its magical beaches follow suit, which are mostly shallow-watered bays protected by the wind.
