9 Reasons to Visit Syros
Several, well actually nine, reasons for my enthusiasm for Syros: (click on the link to go straight to that reason, if you must)
- It is uncrowded and relatively free from tourists.
- It’s unique– boutique shops and marble streets (I kid you not!) are part of its classy look.
- Great beaches! And that blue, crystal clear water you find in the Greek Islands!
- The history and culture of Syros is fascinating!
- Great restaurants and local specialty dishes.
- Syros is affordable– very affordable actually. Even luxury hotels are a fraction of the cost of its glitzy neighbors.
- Friendly locals.
- It’s clean and safe.
- Easy to get to Syros– only a short ferry ride from Athens or Mykonos.
