Silversea Expedition Cruises À SYMI

SYMI
SYMI

As you sail into Symi harbour don’t be surprised if you’re left speechless. With its rows of elegant cream and beige neo-classical houses, its unique blend of gentle aristocratic beauty and its bleating hillside goats, Symi seems set in another time. This is the Greece of history; well preserved mansions, pretty inlets and film set prettiness that is the real deal. As part of the Dodecanese Islands, Symi is one of the lesser known Greek Islands.

Once a thriving sponge-diving and ship building centre, the island attracted riches that far outstripped its neighbour Rhodes (and placed it among Greece’s richest islands). The island’s history is too, rich and rewarding. Although not much is known pre-14th century (bar a mention in Homer’s Illiad), it is known that the name comes from Greek mythology, and the island is widely thought to be the birthplace of the Syme, daughter Ialysos and Dotis. Syme was one of the wives of Poseidon, God of the Seas, and mother of Hthonios. But Symi is above all a place to relax, whether it be in by splashing in the achingly beautiful waters, climbing the rocky hinterland (be on the lookout for these goats) or just gazing at the Aegean Sea. The Panormitis monastery, on the south of the island is well worth visiting. Foodies should note that Symi’s eponymous shrimps are a must try - pan fried and eaten with the shell, they are a quintessential delicacy of the island. Enjoyed in a seaside taverna, we can think of no better way to experience authentic Greece.

Excursions depuis SYMI

Symi Island Highlights

Discover the evolution of Symi Island through its many landmarks, churches and museums during this scenic sightseeing tour.


Symi, Horio Village, Noulias Hill, Windmill Ruins, Archaeological Museum, Hall of Hatziagapitou

Depart the pier for the short drive to Horio Village en route to a photo stop at Noulias Hill. Upon arrival, take in splendid panoramic views of your surrounds, including the ruins of 20 old windmills and Pontikokastro, an ancient, circular building that possibly served as a tomb at one time. Leaving Noulias Hill, continue on-foot along the cobbled alleyways of Horio Village, walking between the houses and old ruins. A visit is made to the Archaeological Museum, which displays artefacts collected throughout the history of the island. Adjacent to the museum is the Hall of Hatziagapitou, a four-storey house designed with the typical architecture of Symi.

Church of Our Lady of the Castle, Castle of the Knights of St. John, 'Last Judgment' Painting

Next, climb the steps to the Church of Our Lady of the Castle (Panagia Tour Kastrou), which is enclosed within the ruins of the walls of the castle of the Knights of St John, and located at the highest point of the settlement. Here, marvel at the spectacular view overlooking the houses of Symi. The Church of our Lady is adorned with the exceptional 'Last Judgment', a 16th-century painting by Georgiou Kloutzas, one of the most gifted post-Byzantine artists.

Kali Strata, Neoclassical Houses, Gialos, Nautical Museum, Church of Timiou Prodromou

Leaving the Church of the Lady, walk down the 500 stone steps of Kali Strata, passing by the Neoclassical houses depicting the grandeur of the island during its most prosperous times. Upon reaching Gialos, continue walking along the pier to the Nautical Museum. Following a visit to the museum, a brief stop is made at the Church of Timiou Prodromou. Erected in 1838 and restored in 1869, this church features a beautiful, cobbled courtyard and elaborate bell tower.


At the conclusion of your visit, commence the short walk back to the pier.
