Greece has many islands both in the Mediterranean and the Aegean seas. Among them the SYMI island (of the Dodecanese) is quite unique with its colorful and characteristic architecture and provides the best possible combination of touristic development and the preservation of the island’s traditions with natural scenery.
Symi is located in the Southern Dodecanese, north of Rhodes and close to the coast of south-west Turkey. Symi is divided into distinctive areas – Yialos is the main harbour. Chorio, literally ‘village’, is the top town.
