Symi Town

Symi Town holidays

Heart-stealing Symi Town is the island’s capital and epicentre of life here. Formed around a natural harbour, the resort’s Italian heritage is etched into the architecture, with pastel-coloured houses spilling down to the waterfront. Symi may be a quiet patch of the stunning Dodecanese archipelago but this town is a holiday honeypot.

Hunt down history

Climb more than 500 steps up the Kalí Stráta path to Horio, the old town, where you can mosey past neo-classical mansions and the ruins of a castle. There’s a tangle of tavernas and bars too, where you can settle in with a drink and soak up incredible views of the harbour.  

Dine waterside 

Symi Town has a certain cosmopolitan panache to it, with buzzing bars and chic restaurants. Grab a table right near the water and feast on the island’s famous fried shrimp with ribbons of garlicky spaghetti or try a juicy swordfish steak.
