With its cosmopolitan grandeur and great naval tradition, Symi island has been called the “jewel of the Dodecanese”. Its elegant capital, consisting of the port of Yialos and the hillside settlement of Horio, makes an immediate impression with its Italian refinement and beautiful neoclassical architecture in pastel colours.
The picture-postcard beauty of the architecturally protected town extends to the blue-green waters of its crenelated coastline, which attracts thousands of yacht-owners and sailors every summer.
Every corner of the island testifies to the wealth and splendour of Symi in the 18th and 19th century as a global shipping and sponge-fishing power, while its aristocratic charm has been discovered in recent years by international jetsetters and Hollywood stars. Whether you come on a day-trip from Rhodes or for a longer stay, this tiny corner of paradise at the edge of the Aegean will provide indelible memories to look back on and cherish.
