Syros is simply elegant. It is an island that amassed incredible wealth in the past and the feeling of its sophistication remains. Marbled roads and squares, beautiful neoclassical architecture and stylish design details make this island shine. It is home to the Apollo Opera, a beautiful building modeled after La Scala in Italy. The island is unique in culture due to the fact two religions continue to co-exist here: Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox. I had one of the best meal experiences in Syros at the beachside restaurant called Allou Gialou. Amazing.
