Symi Express

Now operating with Bus transfer: Every Day including Sunday. Book ONLINE!

The Island Symi & Panormitis, from Faliraki!

The crystal clear waters of the stunning fishing harbour, the pastel coloured neoclassical buildings framing the bay, the blue, red and white church domes papering the landscape…this is Symi!

Enjoy the harmony of nature and man in this sun drenched sleepy corner of the Aegean.

Following free time in the harbour town of Symi, Gialos, the boat will take you to the other side of the island, to the picturesque monastery of Panormitis. This monastery is a famous place of pilgrimage for Christians and renowned for its miracles. The monastery building houses two museums, one of which contains a magnificent silk tapestry, decorated with jewels, depicting the last supper.

Every day, including Sundays, we offer a bus transfer from Faliraki to the Symi boat, and back.

You must book on-line* and reserve your seats.

Tickets cost 49.99 per person and the transfer, to and from the harbour, with our Sea Dreams bus, free of charge.
