Symi Stroll

Symi Stroll

Explore Symi's neoclassical mansions and charm. Delve into its history at the Archaeological Collection and descend to Yialos via the scenic Kali Strata to witness Symi's rich maritime heritage.

At the pier, you will be transferred to the heart of Symi Island at Ano Symi, also known as Horio, where 18th and 19th-century neoclassical mansions line the picturesque streets. Stroll with your guide through the charming maze of alleys, adorned with modest houses showcasing asymmetrical architecture and neo-classical embellishments. Delve into history at the Archaeological Collection of Symi, housed in a traditional Symian mansion, featuring ancient sculptures, urns, and a diverse range of artifacts across five dedicated sections.

Pause for a moment to enjoy a refreshment at a traditional café in Horio under the shade of an ancient tree before embarking on a scenic descent to Yialos via the Kali Strata, a stone stairway of 450 steps boasting breathtaking views. Admire the colorful houses and intricate interiors, adorned with decorative ceilings, skylights, and neoclassical elements. Learn about Symi's rich maritime heritage, once thriving with shipbuilding and sponge diving, a trade pioneered by Symian inhabitants. Witness the legacy of the island's sponge divers at Yialos, where the statue of the little fisherman Michalakis stands as a testament to Symi's storied past.
