Where to stay in Syros.

Ermoupoli (the port and capital of Syros) is one of the most magical and authentically Greek towns in the Cyclades.

Syros is one of the most charming and enchanting islands in Greece. It gets relatively few tourists so feels authentically Greek. Ermoupoli, the port and largest town in the Cyclades, is a wonderful warren of narrow streets and winding alleyways. Syros has good beaches but not marvelous stretches of sand like Naxos, Paros, or Mykonos, so for most people I’d recommend staying in Ermoupoli and making day trips around the island.
