syros-2The Syros to Santorini ferry schedule is available at the bottom of the article.

Syros, one of the Cyclades , is off the tourist track so if you are looking for authentic Greek culture and way of life, this is the place to check out. The city of Ermoupolis is small and charming while the beaches are excellent. The island is small enough to be enjoyed on foot so make sure to pack a good pair of walking shoes.

Syros can represent a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Santorini . Make sure to book your tickets in advance especially if you plan to travel during July and August.

You can also buy tickets in the city. Travel agents that book ferry tickets are easy to find. But by waiting until you get into the city you’re losing a little bit of time. Maybe you go to your hotel, have a swim, grab a bite to eat, and then head out to buy your ferry tickets. By that time it’s evening and everything is closed. Now it’s the next morning before you’re buying them. Do it at the airport, get it done and out of the way – then no worries.
