Overview

Take a relaxing cruise back in time to a small Greek island torn from the pages of history.

Symi is a place where tradition has outpaced time, where life moves with the seamless grace of the sea.

Admire the colorful neoclassical mansions that cling to the hills and climb to a viewpoint overlooking the town where you can see the coves, inlets and cliffs that grace the coastline.

Sit down for a peaceful lunch by the sea, where you can dine on flavorful fish straight from the harbor.

Itinerary

The tour starts from Central Port, where you will embark on this Symi island cruise. You will be accompanied by a licensed, English-speaking guide who will help you navigate the island.

Set sail on a lovely two-hour cruise to the island of Symi, admiring the unbroken beauty of sea and shore. Pull into the harbor and look up at Venetian-style houses tumbling down the hillside.

Archaeological evidence suggests this unassuming island has been continuously inhabited for well over two millennia, and old manuscripts indicate it was the site of an ancient naval battle between the Spartans and Athenians.

The sea around Symi is famous for its natural sponges, which make a unique gift for friends back home.

Wonderful photo opportunities abound from a vista overlooking the town, and quaint waterfront taverns serve up freshly caught seafood (payable direct).

Savor every moment of your return trip to Rhodes, where a coach awaits to return you to your hotel.
