Syros (can also be spelled as Siros or Syra), is another island in Greece in the Cyclades, in the Aegean Sea. If you want to have that tranquil beach experience, beaches in Syros might be the best option. Compared to other Greek Islands where beaches are always crowded with tourists during the summer season, Syros has some beaches that are less crowded. The Ermoupolis is also a place to visit on this island. It’s very lively as it is the center of the Easter festival, which makes Syros popular.

List of Best Things to do in Syros, Greece

1. Church of The Assumption of Virgin Mary

One of the most beautiful Churches of Syros. Nice style and amazing Hagiographies. The church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary is absolutely worth a visit not so much for its building (nineteenth-century but rebuilt in 1951, after the total destruction due to the bombings of the second war) but for the wonderful icon of El Greco that it preserves.

2. Ermoupolis Industrial Museum

Remarkable museum with unique exhibits, which testifies to why half of Greece, which had 100 years of Turkish rule, is left behind. The museum also houses the first car built in Greece.

3. Saint Pakou

When you go to Syros, you should definitely have to enjoy the sunset in the sea between Kythnos and Serifos. The church dominates a cliff from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of the bay of Galissas. They are simply magnificent. Also because the ascent takes only a few minutes, everything is worth it.

4. Megas Gialos

Impressive theater in the center of Ermoupolis. It is a miniature of La Scala in Milan and can be visited as an attraction even when there is no show. Its architecture has been influenced by Italian standards.

Saint Stefanos is a wonderful and picturesque chapel in the area of Galissas built among the rocks making it a little difficult to access. You can take the boat to get there or by car and then walk for about half an hour. If you choose hiking You definitely need closed shoes.

10. Kini Beach
