renting a car  (2 Answers)

Need help with transportation. I am traveling with my Brother and our elderly Mother. We are ferrying in to Ermoupoli and renting a private farmhouse near Kini. the owner of the farmhouse said we must rent a car to get there. But I am having no luck in contacting the rental agency that he provided. And I am unable to find any car rental companies so far. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Also, has anyone taken the train around Ermoupoli? we thought that might be a fun thing to try as well.
Thank you!

Getting around Syros and other islands  (2 Answers)

I am visiting Syros this summer with my son and daughter (both adults). We will be based on Syros (my son is performing in the Festival of the Aegean) but will take ferries to Mykonos and Tinos or Paros (day trips). Is there an easy way of getting around the islands if we want to visit beaches or get out of the city? Are there scooters or bicycles for rent?

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · October 04, 2009

i will be going to Syros for about 20 days in a couple of weeks and would be most interested to be able to see something at the Apollo Theatre. I did not find any events on the website and wonder if the theatre is only open during the summer. If there is any event on, I would be most interested in receiving it and some information as to how to book tickets on-line if possible. I visited the theatre and found it extremely beautiful, a small replica of the Scala here in Milan.

Thanking you in advance for any information you may be able to send me,

Yvonne EL Masri

Galissas  (1 Answer)

Hi guys
I will be staying in Galissas in August with my wife and two daughters.
I was wondering if anybody knew of good cheap and clean accommodation in the
general area. Any info about the island would be welcomed. I'm a bit worried
about keeping two young teenagers happy on holiday.

Kini Accomodation  (1 Answer)

I am hoping to holiday on Syros next year, and have been looking at the available accomodation in Kini. The place looks lovely, and not too far to the nudist beach at Delphini, but not many apartments. I had looked at the Captains Place, but having read a post here which derided it, I have been put off. Can anyone recommend a good place for my friend and myself. We need a 2 bedroom apartment (we're friends, not lovers), and want it to be clean and well maintained. Any suggestions???

hotel info  (1 Answer)

hello from texas!! I'm a first time poster and I am going to Syros for the very first time. I was hoping you could tell me if Sea Colours Hotel is a good place to stay or not? Myself and my girlfriend want to stay in a clean,safe, and nice place while visiting the island. We also however do not want to spend too much money each night. Lastly, we want to be sure that the place that we decide to stay at is close or in the place where there is nightlife,restaurants,shopping and other things to do. In other words, we don't want to be secluded. We received an offer from Sea Colours Hotel to stay for 50 euros a night. Is this a good offer? What does that translate to in US dollars? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much.
