A lovely, mountainous island, Symi (or Simi) was reputed to be the birthplace of the Three Graces. While its interior is punctuated with small valleys, its coastline alternates between being steep and rocky or sandy and indented with little coves.The island took its name from the nymph Syme, who was Poseidons wife.

After its conquest by the Knights of St. John in 1373, commerce and shipping flourished until steam replaced sail. The stately mansions in the main town date from this period, which reached its peak in the 19th century. The island was famous for ship-building and sponge-diving. Even today, you will admire the wonderful caiques at the port, but sponge-diving tends to stop.

The capital in the north of the island bears the same name and is divided into the upper and lower town, Ano Symi and Kato Poli. The lower town, also called Yialos, is the islands main harbour. The harbour is usually crowded with day-trippers from Rhodes, and it is the spot where most of the cafes and restaurants are found. However, do not leave the island without visiting Ano Symi (also called Horio).

The two districts are linked by a lane so steep it has steps. It is flanked by charming neoclassical houses, some of them painted in warm pastel colours, with balconies and peaked, red tile roofs. Many of them also are embellished with neoclassical features on the doors and windows. Their interiors are decorated with wood carvings, the locals having been adept at the craft for generations.


Сими — островное ожерелье Греции, расположен недалеко от острова Кос.
Сими — остров, где нет привычного нам такси. Только водное. Яркие разноцветные домики Сими высыпали на горный склон вокруг бухты. Почти все улочки — это лестницы или дорожки, круто поднимающиеся вверх. Часа за полтора, не торопясь, можно дойти до верхней части города — крепости крестоносцев. И всего за 15 минут спуститься обратно.
А по вечерам на набережных небольших городков начинается шумное веселье с музыкой, танцами. Здесь зажигают горячие греческие парни, выманивая в круг даже самых застенчивых. С ними вы легко научитесь танцевать сиртаки.
