Located on the Greek island of Ikaria in the North Aegean Sea, Evdilos is a village that was originally the first capital of the island. However, today the charming village with its small port is an important port town and the centre of the northern, central and western Ikaria. The village is characterised by narrow streets, old mansions and is regarded as perhaps one of the most architecturally traditional settlements on the island.
The town's port serves the north side of the island and is one of two ports serving Ikaria, with the other being Agios Kirykos. From the port there are daily ferry services to Samos and Piraeus and is linked to the other islands and ports serving commercial vessels visiting the island. The port is a short distance from the town centre where visitors can find shops, hotels, villas and restaurants. Adjacent to the port there is a marina serving small ships, boats and fishing boats. The port is located around 35 km from the island's airport.
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.
