Symi has provided not only spectacular 'in town' walks but some out into the countryside as well. And it seems the town father's or the tourist organization has worked extremely hard to make such explorations a most comfortable experience -- even though the routes can take you up and down from dizzying heights. One of our favorite destinations was 'around the corner' a couple miles from where we were staying. We had the option of walking on the dirt/paved roadway or going through town and linking up with the trail pictured above. Our little neighboring hamlet is called Nimborios - there we found a scatterin of spectacular private homes, a few rental studio apartnements and a single taverna. . .who needs more in this setting?
The trail was a flat surface all the way; rather steep and they don't use handrails or guardrails around here. . .so you can't let those drop-dead vistas let you lose concentration for too long, but with views like the one below it was hard not to be distracted.
