Getting Here

Getting to Syros and the Sanctuary

 

Travel

There is a small airport on the edge of Ermopoulis that services just one flight per day between Athens and Syros and back. It is just a 25-minute flight with Sky Express: http://skyexpress.gr/.

 

The busy harbor area of ‘downtown’ Ermopoulis has several boats that come and go each day between Syros and the ports of Athens (Pireaus and Raffina). The addition of a fast boat means the trip is only about 2 hours.

 

From Syros, there is easy access to the other islands, many, where Mykinos, Tinos, Paros are in easy reach: www.Greekferries.com

 

Private flights are available from Athens airport.

 

Car hire:

We work with Smart Car rentals who usually bring the car to the port / airport to greet you. They have always given our guests a very good price and have always been courteous and reliable (please mention our name).

Taxis:

Available generally. A taxi station can be found in front of the monument of National Resistance in Ermoupoli’s main square. Τel. 0030 22810 84222, 0030 22810 86222

 

Having lived on the island for 10 years we would say from our experience that financial transactions have always been easy, honest and with an emphasis on the Greek hospitality that wants to do extra to make you feel welcome.

 

This is not a touristy island and the people here mostly live here the whole year round and are proud of the place – as are we.
