Annual Symi Festival (Local Culture)
The annual Symi festival, held from July to September, is an important cultural event on the island. Theatre, open-air cinema, dance, traditional and classical music, literary and art exhibitions are all included in the summer programme.
Hiking on Symi (Walking)
Pack some strong walking shoes and a sun hat because Symi is a hiker's paradise and the best way to uncover the island's many treasures is on foot. If you're planning on doing some serious walking consider visiting in the spring or autumn because temperatures on the island are almost the highest in Greece. You'll also avoid the high season hordes that flock here daily from neighbouring Rhodes in July and August.
