My husband and I are in Syros for the next 6 nights and I am beginning to think we made a mistake in booking for this length of time. It rained heavily for most of yesterday althought it appears to be clearing up today.
I had thought easy day trips to Mykonos and maybe some of the other islands would be possible but Mykonos is a long long day (leave at 9 and back at 8:30 or thereabouts). The only other ones which are shorter are Tinos and Serifnos ( or something like that!). Our hotel - the Syrou Melathron - is very nice and convenient to the main town area - but I am not sure what else we can do during our time here. I think there is a green bus which goes to various parts of the southern island and perhaps we could stop for lunch etc at villages that take our fancy.
We have also discovered the Megharon Cafe which has already become our favourite stop for coffee - very stylish but very welcoming - great staff!
Any hints/advice would be welcome. We have already spoken to the TeamWork travel agency which was very nice but unable to offer more than the boat trips mentioned above.
