A few words about Samos island:
Samos island is a place of striking beauty and the crown jewel of the north east Aegean. It is the most developed island of the cluster. Its natural wealth is in abundance as it remains one of the less explored islands of Greece. Perfect for an off-the-beaten track holiday, choosing Samos as your next destination will give you a fresh perspective on Greek island living and exceed your expectations, many times over. Full of stunning landscapes that hide many gems such as waterfalls and caves, Samos also has many spectacular beaches that will instantly disarm you. Apart from the bountiful nature and an endless list of things to do within its embrace, Samos also has great cultural value.
The island’s intriguing past makes up for its fascinating multicultural character with its impressive array of archaeological findings that reinforce Samos’ deeply ancient Greek roots. Samos was a rich and powerful city-state during ancient Greek times, known far and wide for its exquisite wine production and red pottery. In fact, Samian wine has stood the test of time and is still highly regarded throughout Greece and the world today! The most famous ancient structure in Samos has always been the Heraion, a large sanctuary dedicated to the goddess Hera, remnants of which you will find right next to Pythagoreio.
Samos island is connected via frequent air services with Athens, the largest Greek cities and, during the tourist season, with all of Europe. There is also daily connection with the port of Piraeus, Athens and other islands, as well as with Kusadasi in Turkey.
