Thirasia Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands is the Greek island of Thirasia, or Therasia, and lies in the Aegean Sea to the north west of Nea Kameni, a small island formed in recent centuries following volcanic activity. Located next to the island's small harbour is a pebble beach, which is the island's only beach. The only track of the island will take you to the church of Agia Irini which is said to have given Santorini its current name (Santa Irini - Santorini).

The Cyclades are an island group in the Aegean Sea, south east of mainland Greece and a former administrative prefecture of Greece. They are one of the island groups which constitute the Aegean archipelago. The name refers to the islands around the sacred island of Delos. The Cyclades is where the native Greek breed of cat (the Aegean cat) originated.

Visitors usually get to the island by boat as a part of a volcano trip that first gets you to Nea Kameni for a visit to the crater of the volcano then at the hot springs of Palaia Kameni for swimming and then to Thirasia for a few minutes before they head to Oia for the sunset.

Syros Guide

The Greek island of Syros is one of the Cyclades group of islands and is unusual in that the island's architecture is more medieval rather than the more typical Cycladic. The island's capital is Ermoupolis and has some fine examples of Venetian mansions to see. In the Vaporia quarter of the capital visitors will find some lovely large churches and impressive neoclassical buildings, such as the Town Hall and Apollo Theatre in the central square. Also popular with visitors are the island's beaches which are well equipped for tourists and have a good range of facilities.

The island can trace its history back to the 3rd millennium BC where signs of inhabitation have been found in the Halandriani and Kastri parts of the island. Artefacts found indicate that there was some kind of metal workshop on the island which possibly had a trading relationship with Asia Minor. The Samians occupied the island in the 6th century BC and is when many of the island's inhabitants moved to the island. At that time, the important physician and philosopher Pherecydis was born in Syros and some years later he went to Samos and became the teacher of Pythagoras.
