Symi

The island of Symi, 45 km (27 mi) north of Rhodes, is an enchanting place, with Chorio, a 19th-century town of neoclassic mansions, crowning a hillside above the harbor. The island has few beaches and almost no flat land, so it is not attractive to developers. As a result, quiet Symi provides a peaceful retreat for travelers, who tend to fall in love with the island on their first visit and return year after year.
