The Greek island of Syros is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, around 145 km to the south east of Athens, the Greek capital. The island's history dates back to around the 3rd millennium BC, to the reign of Halandriani and Kastri. Artefacts excavated on the island show that there must have been a metalwork laboratory on the island which it is thought had a commercial relationship with Asia Minor. During the 6th century BC, the island was occupied by the Samians, when many of the island's inhabitants moved to the island. The important physician and philosopher, Pherecydis was born on the island during this period and later went to Samos and became Pythagoras' teacher.
In addition to the island's beauty, Syros has a thriving cultural scene and a love of the arts. Tourists should take the time to visit the island's museums and galleries in addition to strolling through pretty village streets or lazing on the beach.
From the island's port there are ferry services to Rafina and Piraeus by both conventional or high speed ferry. Syros is also connected to all of the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, Crete, Thessaloniki and Skiathos.
The Greek island of Limnos lies in the north Aegean Sea and landscape and terrain is characterised by beaches and sheltered gulfs, a landscape of volcanic rock that is broken by small hills and traditional villages. The island's inhabitants make the best of the island's fertile terrain by producing a number of different local products which includes the Muscat of Limnos, a Designation of Origin of Superior Quality sweet white wine that has a golden colour and full bodied taste. Also produced on the island is Kalathaki (little basket) which is a white cheese that is left to dry and mature in small straw baskets.
By Ferry from Myrina, there are connection with the islands of Agios Efstratios, Lesvos and Samothrace (in the summertime only) and with the mainland to the ports of Piraeus and Lávrio (Athens area) Thessaloniki and Kavála.
