Symi Guide

The Greek island of Symi is one of the Dodecanese Islands and is located around 40 km to the north west of the island of Rhodes and 420 km from the Port of Piraeus. Symi's closest neighbours are the Datca and Bozburun peninsulars of Mugla Province in Turkey. The island's terrain is mainly mountainous and its coastline is made up of either beaches and secluded coves, or rocky cliffs. Located on the north east coast of the island is its main town, also called Symi. The lower town is the area around the harbour, called Yialos, and the upper town is called Horio or Ano Symi. There isn't a great deal to see or do on the island, and this is perhaps where its charm is. Apart from lazing on the beach or swimming in its crystal clear waters the Monastery of the Archangel Panormitis, which is an early 18th century Greek Orthodox monastery built on the coast in the south west of the country, is worth visiting. Overlooking Ano Symi is the Kastro which was built by the Knights of St. John as an expansion of a Byzantine castle on the same site. Quite a bit of the structure remains and there are also signs of an ancient citadel on which two later castles were built.

Leros Guide

Leros is a Greek island and is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies between the islands of Patmos and Kalymnos. Legend has it that Leros is where the goddess Artemis would go hunt as it was home to a large population of deer. The island's long history can easily be observed in the many ancient monuments that are spread around the island. Popular attractions include the Medieval Castle and the island's interesting museums. The most visited places on the island are Alinda and Agia Marina but for the more adventurous, a drive around the island will not disappoint as there are a number of lovely beaches with crystal clear waters waiting to be discovered. The island is also popular with scuba divers who visit to explore the many ancient shipwrecks that lie on the seabed around the island.

From the island's port there are daily ferry connections to the port of Piraeus and by conventional ferry and hydrofoil to most of the Greek islands of the Dodecanese like Patmos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. There are also weekly connection to some of the islands of the Cyclades like Syros and Amorgos.
