The island of Symi is one of Greece’s best kept secrets, that’s why is the most popular daily excursion. It is adorned with traditional houses and charming neoclassical buildings that feature peaked roofs of red tile and wonderful balconies. Here you can enjoy relaxing walks along the colorful coastline and listening to the sounds of the waves. Monastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis is a landmark in the early 18th century that overlooks the bay.

The whole days trip was amazing...the boat ride out to Symi was an enjoyable experience...plenty of room on the boat... The only downside was we were there for 5 hours which was a bit too long as there is not really a lot to do there... Also one of the sponge factory stalls only

Hello from Kariba Travel ! Its true that Symi is one of the most beautiful islands of Dodecanese islands. As much time as you have, usually is not enough. You visited Symi for 3 1/2 hours & Panormitis for 1 hour as it was the program. We suggest to you next time to stay over night so you are going to have plenty of time and relax. Always at your disposal !
