Transportation

The vantage location of Syros in the heart of the Cyclades and the short distance from Athens enables all travellers to go to the island in whatever way serves them best, either by air or by boat.

Syros is the ideal destination for long vacations, short breaks or island hopping plus it is connected to Athens with daily ferries and with other Islands on a regular basis.

The cruise is also an option for a short visit, as more and more cruise ships anchor at the port of Syros.

Yachting enthusiasts can sail to the island of Syros and anchor their yachts in the port of Ermoupolis or one of the marinas and smaller ports of the island.
