Syros, the queen

I really love Syros. I visit it at least once a year. There is something magic about it. The atmosphere of Ermoupolis, the town hall at Miaouli square – a masterpiece designed by Ernest Chiller, the “Apollo” theatre which was modeled after the famous “La Scala di Milano Opera House” in Milan. Everything in Syros makes you want to go back again and again. Syros is the queen of Cyclades and we know it!

Ermoupolis is the capital of Cyclades. You can find everything you need. These are all i need for my after sun treatment! (Sunglasses Celia Kritharioti)
