Syros may not be as well-known as Santorini or Mykonos, but this enchanting Greek island in the Cyclades has its own unique charms that are well worth discovering. From its neoclassical capital Ermoupoli to its idyllic villages and pristine beaches, Syros offers a delightful blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. While Syros is less expensive than some of the more famous Greek islands, it's still wise to plan your trip carefully if you're on a tight budget. The shoulder months of April-May and September-October offer pleasant weather and lower prices on accommodations. Budget travelers can find rooms for as little as €20-40 per night, or opt for camping around €5 per person. Eating at casual tavernas and buying food from local markets can also help keep costs down.
Ermoupoli is easily one of Syros' top attractions with its grand marble squares, neoclassical mansions, and labyrinths of stairs and alleys to explore. Don't miss the impressive Apollon Theater and the Ermoupoli Industrial Museum which showcases the island's shipbuilding heritage. The 13th century Ano Syros is the island's other main town, perched atop a hill with winding cobblestone streets and beautiful churches like Agios Georgios. For ancient history, visit the ruins of the Hellenistic Delos just a short boat ride from Syros.

With more than 25 beautiful beaches to choose from, Syros is a great pick for beach lovers looking for a more low-key, authentic Greek island experience. Top swimming spots include Galissas, Delfini, and Finikounda. For adventure, Syros offers excellent hiking trails like the Apano Meria loop showcasing scenic villages and vistas. Or join the locals for a ceramic workshop at a studio in Ermoupoli. Sailing and kayaking are also popular ways to explore Syros' beautiful coastline.
Food and Dining
Syros' cuisine showcases its blend of Greek and Cycladic influences. Be sure to try local specialties like loukoumades (a type of honey donut), San Michalis cheese aged in terracotta barrels, and drunken drunken merenda salted rusks. Typical meals feature fresh seafood, meat dishes like lamb with pitho pasta, and beans or vegetables cooked in delicious tomato sauces. For cheap and authentic eats, locals recommend Allou Yialou in Ermoupoli and places like Stin Apano Meria in hilltop villages.
