What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Windmills of Symi, 85600 Greece

You will have ~6 hours free time in Symi, where you can have lunch, swim or shop.

Duration: 6 hours

Stop At: Panormitis Monastery, Greece

You will have an opportunity to visit Panormitis Monastery as well, if you like. It was built in the 18th century, and you will be amazed of its interior: remarkable wall paintings of byzantine times, a wood-carved altarpiece and the impressive icon of Archangel Michail with the oblations from worshippers.

The visit to Panormitis Monastery is optional. Once you arrive to Symi, there will be a bus that you can bring you to Panormis for extra 6 euros per person (both ways included: Symi - Panormitis Monastery - back to Symi ~13:30). Just have in mind that you will have left ~4 hours free time to explore Symi, where you can have lunch, shopping or swim at nearby beach.

When booking, please choose the variation you would like to have:

1. Just a Boat Trip by the Speedboat

2. Boat Trip + Bus Transfer to Panormitis Monastery included

Duration: 40 minutes

Symi is the perfect island to spend the day, the boat trip is perfectly organized so you can just relax and enjoy it. We rented scooters on the Symi, definitely recommend doing that to go around the island

No, the boat doesn‘t make any swim stop to Symi but you have on the Island the possibility to swim. There is a nice beach in the near of the habour.
