Description: We will pick you up at your location. Our first stop will be the majestic cathedral of St. Nicolas, patron saint of Hermoupolis that stands out for its lavish interiors and impressive architectural structure. St. Nicholas is located at the prestigious district of Vaporia, featuring some unique high-ceiling mansions that seem to hover above the sea.Next we go to the Apollon Theater, one of the major attractions of Syros and cultural icon of Hermoupolis. Built in 1864 to the designs of  the Italian architect Pietro Sampo, who drew his inspiration by at least 4 Italian standards including the Scala di Milano, the theater is hosting nowadays various cultural events. We are on our way now to the heart of Hermoupolis; Miaoulis square is the historic square of Syros featuring architectural marvels in a dreamy landscape of the 19th century. Here we will visit the Town Hall designed by Ernst Ziller. The crown jewel of Syros was built in 1898 drawing architecturally on three different styles, Tuscan, Ionic and Corinthian, boasting outstanding features such as a princely staircase 15.5 meters high. Moving on we pay a visit to the Church of the Dormition, the second oldest church on the island with the authentic icon of The Dormition of the Virgin painted in 1562 by Dominikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco). Leaving the town center, we will visit the old town of Syros, the medieval settlement of Ano Syros, located up at the hill to the left above Hermoupolis. We will enter the settlement at the top of the hill. Here we will visit the Cathedral of St. George, which is the Catholic cathedral of the island,  the Catholic Monastery of Capuchins and the church of St. John built in 1635.
