Cruises from Symi
Symi is the main town of a Greek island of the same name. Lying NW of the island of Rhodes, it has areas of significance in history and mythology. The town of Symi is divided in two parts: the harbourside one called Gialós, and the adjacent one on the slopes of the hills, called Chorió. Gialós is of two- and three-storey traditional stone houses, painted in all colours but mostly in indigo, ochre and terracotta, with red tiled roofs and cute little balconies with railings in the style peculiar to Symi.
The two town areas have thirteen major churches and dozens of chapels, with many dating back to the Byzantine era.
