Syros: The Lady of the Aegean Islands

Most tourists flock to famous Aegean islands like Mykonos, Paros, and Santorini, but overlook some truly spectacular destinations like Syros. This island contains the former capital of the Cyclades, Hermoupolis.

Just two and a half hours from Athens (for those taking the fast ferry), Syros has a totally different look than the rest of the Aegean islands. Instead of the classic blue and white houses, the capital of Hermoupolis boasts a stunning neoclassical style. The buildings look more like Italy’s Venice than Mykonos.

Two of the most well-known buildings in Syros are the Town Hall and the Apollon Theater. In front of the majestic and massive Town Hall, tourists will find one of the biggest plateies – town square – in the Aegean islands.

The Apollon Theater is also known as La Piccola Scala. This is because it was designed a smaller version of the famous Scala theater in Milan. It hosts plays, concerts, and other musical performances throughout the year.

Hi, Greece troll.

It astounds me how many flock to the way overpriced, name recognized islands in Greece when there are countless places to visit that are just as beautiful and far less touristy. Including gorgeous costal regions.

Koufonisia for instance, plus so many places in the Peloponnese region/coastline. The options are numerous.

Greece troll, do you work for the Greek Reporter or do they compensate you for promoting their site? (Not that there is anything wrong with that.)

Why be upset about this thread or a Greek troll (or trolls)? What is it about Greece that brings out the claws?
