Things to do

Symi:

Discover the beautiful capital city of Symi, which shares its name with the island. Visit the Monastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis, a Greek Orthodox Monastery on the island. The war memorial is also not to be missed. Stroll through town and visit the small boutiques that line the white-washed streets of Symi.

Panormitis Monastery:

The Panormitis monastery is located on the southern tip of Symi. The monastery sits in a beautiful location enclosed in a cove. The monastery is a large 18th-century building with the tallest baroque bell tower in the world. The building is in excellent condition, and additional structures have been added for tourist accommodations and amenities.

Symi Festival:

From July to September, the island of Symi puts on an open-air festival. This has attracted some of Greece's most well-known musicians for years, like Nana Mouskouri and Yannis Markopoulos. Musicians typically play on the main square in Yialos, the harbour in the town of Symi.

Symi Nautical Museum:

Visit the Symi Nautical Museum. The museum, founded in 1983, now resides in a neoclassical building near the shipyard. The museum includes many exhibits on sea life, but the sponge-fishing exhibit is of particular interest. Various weapons and gear are on display.

Saint George Bay:

This popular beach is secluded and only reachable by taxi boat (available from Yialos). The beach has a steep cliff that blocks sun starting mid-afternoon. The beach is truly pristine, without tavernas or facilities. Many tourists find it to be their favourite place.

Archaeological and Folklore Museum:

The Archaeological and Folklore Museum is located in the mansion of the Gianneski family. The museum, made possible by Ariadni V. Farmakidi and Sevasti N. Farmakidi, is a donation to the country of Greece. The museum exhibits pieces from the Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman periods, the Byzantine collection, and the Folklore collection

Weather in Symi

The weather on Symi is consistent with a Mediterranean climate. A phenomenon known as the Etesian winds, a wind system that is present in late summer every year, gives sailors pause during certain hours of the day. Western beaches are to be avoided at these hours. The island is otherwise sunny almost all year round, and reaches a high temperature of 30°C in summer. Winter temperatures dip down to 10°C.

Travel to Symi

The island of Symi can only be reached by ferry. Flights into the larger islands of Kos (KGS) and Rhodes (RHO) arrive daily from all over mainland Europe and the British Isles. From either of these islands, take a ferry to Symi. Car-carrying ferries and catamarans operate within the entirety of the Aegean Sea.

Zohar was more than helpful and always ensured we were content. Restaurant Elena just along the seafront is superb and remembered us all from the year previous. Would highly recommend this villa.

Symi is a beautiful, quiet Greek island, friendly locals, & wonderful food!! The patio and BBQ area were most welcome in the heat of the day, as it had typical Greek greenery growing, providing some relief from the sun!! Be aware, access to upper areas is via a small, spiral staircase, quite narrow, and some may find it difficult, ( but the youngest in our party of four was 61, & we all managed fine!!) Well pleased we found this property. The owner, and Christina who is nearby to assist, where most helpful, & it is the first property we will try to book, when we return to Symi, next year!! Thank you so much h, Vincent, Yassas!!

                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                    We went to Agapitos's house as a group of three friends so to have three bedrooms and two proper bathrooms plus an extra toilet was great. One of the rooms and bathroom is on one side of the courtyard whilst the rest of the house is on the other with the other two bedrooms upstairs so it's perfect for providing some privacy. The views are stunning but they do come at a price! We counted 530 steps up from the harbour so you certainly walk off all the good food. There are, of course, restaurants in Chorio but the house wouldn't really be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The kitchen is well equipped although, to be honest, we didn't use it for much. We really enjoyed our stay and Agapitos was very kind, meeting us at the harbour and telling us all about the house. A great house for spending hours on the two terraces, looking at the views!
