SYROS accommodations Cyclades Greece
  if you are interested in antique buildings, road blues and good food, this is your island
  Though this island is the Cyclades administrative and commercial center – beside the island more populated among the entire archipelago – as well as the junction of all the ferries crossing the Cyclades, Syros touristic appeal hasen’t grown so much (almost exclusively greek incoming). Syros story is rich and complex , which zenith has been the 19th century when it became the biggest naval and trade center of whole Greece, more important of the Piraeus itself (virtually till Corinth canal was opening). Syros territory is rocky and palms adorned, the main beaches are Kini and Galissas over all, shaded by tamarisks.  

Nowdays two-thirds of the residents of the whole island are centred around Ermopoulis, actually a city (the Cyclades biggest one) known for its food specialty and the antique and absolutely fascinating atmosphere. The chief-town has been once residence of ship owners coming from Asia, and it is an amphitheatre made of Nineteenth century posh buildings built into a neoclassical style, located on two hills that raise over the port oddly dividing it into two different areas, an orthodox and a catholic one.

  Among the buildings the city hall and Apollo opera theatre should be noticed, the latter being a perfect copy of Milan Scala Opera in smaller dimensions. Markos Vamvakaris was born in Syros, he became famous since the thirties playing the bouzouki and rempetika ("road stories") composer, kind of greek blues with great islamist tone influences. A museum dedicated to him is located in Ano Syros charming medieval area, in Ermoupolis top side.
