The largest town on Syros is Ermoupolis, to the east of the island. Ermoupolis is a popular town, with a harbour that is lined with small cafés, bars and restaurants shaded by palm trees.

Things to do in Ermoupolis include visiting the Archaeological Museum.
The town of Ano Syros is the island's second town. Ano Syros was built by the Venetians at the beginning of the 13th century and maintains a medieval atmosphere with narrow streets and marble steps.
Syros also has many beautiful beaches; the beaches of Magas Gialos and Galissas are particularly popular.
Chios in the North Aegean, close to Turkey, is popular with Greek tourists and less so with foreign tourists and for this reason you can get a real taste of Greek life on this island. It is the fifth largest of the Greek islands so you'll have plenty of options in terms of different beaches, hotels, and places to eat and drink.
The name of the island possibly comes from the Greek word for snow: chioni, since the island's patron god Poseidon was born under snowfall. Traditionally it was a rich island due to the production of Mastic gum (which it still makes) and wine. As a consequence the architecture of the island with large stunning colourful houses reflects this rich history of trade.
