Luxury holidays in Syros
When to go
If there’s one thing the Cyclades have in common, it’s their near-perfect Mediterranean climes. Even in the winter months the temperature rarely dips below 10 degrees. And with 15 festivals a year – from opera to cinema – you’ll never be short of things to do.
PlanesThe nearest International hub is Athens. Find direct flights from most major UK and European cities, as well as the US, Asia and the Middle East. From Athens, express bus X96 will take you to the port of Piraeus, where scheduled ferry services depart for Syros twice a day. Journey times vary from two to four hours, but make sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
AutomobilesWhile a car can be useful for exploring the island at your own pace, the island is compact enough to explore by public transport, or better still – by bike. Road conditions are generally good but if you do decide to drive, park up before heading into Ermoupoli where streets tend to be narrow, steep and parking spots rare.
