Symi also transliterated Syme or Simi (Greek: Σύμη) is a Greek island and municipality. It is mountainous and includes the harbour town of Symi and its adjacent upper town Ano Symi, as well as several smaller localities, beaches, and areas of significance in history and mythology. Symi is part of the Rhodes regional unit. The shipbuilding and sponge industries were substantial on the island and, while at their peak near the end of the 19th century, the population reached 22,500. Symi's main industry is now tourism and the permanent population has declined to 2,500, although numbers swell in the summer months.

  4. I like Mediterranean towns on the sea. They are picturesque and usually colorful like Symi.

  5. If Greece is half as pretty as the photos I've seen, I really must visit there sometime.
