  • "Great trip"

    The Diagoras is a large modern comfortable ferry. We were only on it for three and a half hours so cannot comment on cabins, but the corridors all looked immaculate. We had a lovely dinner in the dining room and a very pleasant trip from Rhodes to Tilos.

Symi Guide

The Greek island of Symi is one of the Dodecanese Islands and is located around 40 km to the north west of the island of Rhodes and 420 km from the Port of Piraeus. Symi's closest neighbours are the Datca and Bozburun peninsulars of Mugla Province in Turkey. The island's terrain is mainly mountainous and its coastline is made up of either beaches and secluded coves, or rocky cliffs. Located on the north east coast of the island is its main town, also called Symi. The lower town is the area around the harbour, called Yialos, and the upper town is called Horio or Ano Symi. There isn't a great deal to see or do on the island, and this is perhaps where its charm is. Apart from lazing on the beach or swimming in its crystal clear waters the Monastery of the Archangel Panormitis, which is an early 18th century Greek Orthodox monastery built on the coast in the south west of the country, is worth visiting. Overlooking Ano Symi is the Kastro which was built by the Knights of St. John as an expansion of a Byzantine castle on the same site. Quite a bit of the structure remains and there are also signs of an ancient citadel on which two later castles were built.


Patmos Guide

The Greek island of Patmos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, just off the west coast of Turkey. Skala is the port town on the island and is also the location of many of the most popular attractions. To the north of Skala is Meloi Beach with is picturesque and is shaded by trees. In the village of Hora there is the Monastery of St. John which is a popular site as is the Cave of Apocalypse which is thought to have been the sacred cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave visitors are able to see the cross that was engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks in the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity. The island is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible where it states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus.
