Prefecture of the Cyclades General

  • Fira Town

    Santorini Island General

    Santorini is probably best known, by people that have never been there, by the dramatic white buildings with the blue domed roofs. Hiking around the island you'll see all sorts of colors but the hills of Thira are very dramatic with their stark appearance against the volcanic cliffs.

  • Naxos Night Shots

    Naxos Island General

    As I travel at different times around the Cyclades islands when we do reach a port I always like to be out on the open deck of the ferry to see the activity and what goes on while we are waiting for passengers to disembark or embark the ferry. The photos here are from Naxos island while I'm was travelling to the Small Cyclades Islands.

  • Ano Syros

    Syros Island General

    In the 13th c. Syros was captured by Franks who build a little medieval town on the high hill above the port. They named it Ano Syros (upper Syros). The island later came under the Venetians who disseminated Catholism. Gradually Ano Syros and neoclassical Orthodox Ermoupoli became one. After the disaster in Smirna (Izmir) in 1922 a new wave of...

  • Sunset Over Donousa Island

    Nisos Donousa General

    As i have stayed on the island of Donoussa for four days I had a lot of time to explore the island which most of my days I have spend it walking and hiking around the island. In the evening I'm was having a great rest up on the hill on my way back to my apartment, where the church of Panagia and Agios Ioannis are. The sunsets from here are...

  • Nea Kameni - The Volcano

    Santorini Island General

    The present-day funny shape of the island is created by a huge eruption of the ancient supervulcano, which dates back more than three thousand years. The 30-40 kilometers high eruption cloud was seen from hundreds of kilometers and the thundering noise from the explosions must have been heard in almost the entire world. The height of the following...

    Ermoupoli is totally different from the towns of other islands. Greek and foreigh engineers and architects worked here to make Ermoupoli grand and aristocratic. Each building has its own history....

  • Oia Village

    Santorini Island General

    Our accommodation was in Firostafani Village only 10 minutes walk from Fira Town. It would have been easy to remain in this comfort zone and have a memorable holiday on Santorini , however we made the trip to Oia twice, once for the sunset and again mid afternoon the following day to enjoy the village when it is less crowded. If you want to see...

  • Lockers At The Port

    Syros Island General

    For day trippers but also those who have to check out from their hotel and still have plenty of time until they catch the evening ferry they may want to take advantage of the lockers at the port. The building of Port Authority Office is just opposite the port and has plenty of lockers, a large waiting room with chairs and tables to take notes (or...

    The distance from Ermoupoli is 12km via Parakopi and 2300m via Megas Gyalos. It's an area full of new and old villas betweeen the pine andpalm trees. The 2 names come from the ancient Poseidonia and from Madonna della Grazia. The Catholic church of Saint Peter, the orthodox church of Saint John are 2 of the interesting points of Della Grazia.

  • Health Issues And Doctors

    Santorini Island General

    Santorini doesn’t have a proper hospital (a long demand by the 15000 locals), just a Public Health Center in Fira which is too small for the large amounts of visitors that go there in summer (about 2million tourists every year). They can handle some emergency but serious cases will airlift to Athens or Crete. There are also some small private...

  • Olympiakos Fans In Syros

    Syros Island General

    As we were looking down from Ano Syros we noticed a football field, I stopped to take a photo when three kids passed by with football tshirts, two of them were wearing Olympiakos FC tshirts which reminded me of how popular Olympiakos (the big team of Piraeus in football, basketball, volleyball etc) is in the greek islands too, probably a...

  • Vardakeio & Proio Hospital

    Syros Island General

    I hope no tourist needs doctor during holidays but at least Syros has a proper hospital (unlike other famous islands, hm, for whom the bell tolls?). Vardakeio & Proio Hospital is located in the center of Ermoupolis (about 900m SW from Miaoulis square), just opposite the Industrial Museum, behind Iroon monument. It was founded in 1958 and it...
