Syros is in the Cyclades group of the Greek Islands, off the normal tourist track. Known as the grand dame of the Cyclades, Syros provides an authentic Greek island culture experience. Ermoupolis, the main town of 13,000 people, is the Cyclades’ centre of government and features magnificent neoclassical architecture. The majority of residents do not work in the tourist industry.
