As you enter the natural harbour of Symi, you will be charmed by this beautiful island. One of the most picturesque islands of the Dodecanese, Symi promises its visitors peace and tranquility.
Symi Town is a visual treat with its colourful buildings and imposing churches. Lively Gialos, the harbour area, is lined with cafes, fish restaurants, sponge and spice stalls; the narrow streets are packed with interesting little jewellery, clothing and gift shops.
Dozens of steps lead to the upper part of Symi Town, Chorio, where there are also a few tavernas and cafes as well as great views of the area.
A stop at the beautiful bay of Panormitis is a must, where the 17th century’s monastery of Saint Michael welcomes its pilgrims as well as its tourists to admire the treasures dedicated to the saint for his miracles.
