Buzzing with life year-round, Syros is a unique mix of architecture, nature, people, religions, all melting together into a small island in the Aegean Sea. The neoclassical Hermoupolis coexists with the medieval Cycladic Ano Syros, the traditional element with the cosmopolitan, the Orthodox tradition with the Catholic. The villages with traditional architecture and magnificent manors, the seaside resorts in the South with the untamed mountainous in the North.
Summer on Syros means sun-drenched days of fun by the sea. The island has everything from unpopulated paradises with secret bays and caves for diving in the North, to cosmopolitan beaches with restaurants, bars and hotels in the South.
