Introducing Syros

Endearing little Syros merges traditional and modern Greece. One of the smallest islands of the Cyclades and relatively rural outside of the capital, it nevertheless has the highest population since it is the legal and administrative centre of the entire archipelago. It is also the ferry hub of the northern islands and home to Ermoupoli, the grandest of all Cycladic towns, with an unusual history. As the capital, it buzzes with life year-round, boasts great eateries, and showcases the best of everyday Greek life.
