A taste of the Middle Ages in the Greek Isles

A member of the Cyclades and the site of their capital, Ermoupoli, picturesque Syros is unique among the Greek islands. While you'll find some of the traditional whitewashed buildings you've come to expect, the island is equally notable for its medieval architecture and 19th-century Venetian-style buildings. Coming into prominence in the 1800s as a major port town, today Syros enjoys a quieter existence than some if its party-centric counterparts. A Syros vacation rental puts you near some of the most beautiful and serene beaches of the Aegean Sea, with top-notch water sports and sunsets to boot.

Beaches, boats, and ball games in a land of beauty

Like most of the Cyclades, one of the main draws of Syros is its pristine sandy beaches. From family-friendly areas to remote locales that are popular with the clothing-optional set, there's a perfect beach for everyone in your crew—just make sure you know which one you're heading to. Boat tours let you enjoy the crystal clear waters up close, or you can opt for hiking and walking if you prefer to stay on solid ground. Sports fanatics can catch a soccer or volleyball match, and there's more than enough sightseeing to keep you busy.

From cathedrals to casinos in the capital of the Cyclades

Syros is made up 2 hills, with a church atop each. Ermoupoli is on one, where you'll find Venetian mansions, neoclassical buildings, and traditional whitewashed homes dotting the streets that slope down to the sea. Miaouli Square, with its cafes and palm trees, is the center of it all. Ano Syros is on the other, noted for its 13th-century Catholic St. George's Cathedral. Museum buffs will love the Archaeological Museum and music exhibits at the Markos Vamvakaris Museum. The Apollon Theatre, built in 1876, is also worth a visit, as is the Casino Syros (if you're feeling lucky).

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

You can expect sunny, warm summers and rainy, mild winters when you head to your Syros vacation rental. Thanks to the Meltemi winds, summer temperatures don't reach the sweltering levels that you tend to see on the mainland. Highs from May to October are pleasantly in the 70s, peaking in the low 80s in July and August. You'll see temps ranging from the mid-40s to upper 50s in the colder months of December to March. While you won't have to worry about snow, you're likely to see some scattered showers between October and March.

Explore nature's amphitheater, from hilltop to hilltop

You'll have your pick of hills at a Syros vacation rental. Two of them dominate the landscape of the 32-square-mile island, forming a natural amphitheater in the capital of Ermoupoli. Further afield, you'll find plenty of sandy beaches for soaking up the Aegean views, as well as some spectacular sunrises and sunsets to boot. The coasts can get rugged as you get further from the main town, so bring your sturdy shoes for some vigorous walking and hiking. Whether you prefer the vibrant blues of the sea or the emerald waters of the beachy inlets, you're sure to be impressed.
