Getting to Syros and contact details

Although at present there are no direct flights from the UK/Europe, there are tentative plans to extend the runway by 2023 which is considered by many to come with mixed blessings..........we love the quiet seclusion that the island offers but yet are keen to share the delights that Syros (the Duchess of the Cyclades) promises.  There are daily flights from Athens, taking around 40 minutes. Syros airport is only 2kms from Ermoupolis and taxis are cheap and convenient at both ends.  

There are daily ferries from Piraeus and Rafina (the closest port to Athens airport). As Syros is located centrally in the Aegean Sea, it is serviced by ferry connections with many other islands – Mykonos has two ferries a day to Syros (also stopping at Tinos) –  one early morning and one mid-afternoon, but check out the other islands in the Cyclades.   We would recommend flying into Mykonos, staying at one of the many pensions near the port – we can definitely suggest Makis Place ( – their very helpful staff will meet you at the airport and then drop you off at the ferry the following day.  If you manage to get an afternoon flight back home then the morning ferry out of Syros will usually get you back in time.  

We can organise a rental car to meet you at either the port or the airport.
