(4.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Samos is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, south of Chios, north of Patmos and the Dodecanese, and off the coast of Asia Minor, from which it is separated by the 1.6km-wide Mycale Strait. It is also a separate regional unit of the North Aegean region, and the only municipality of the regional unit.In ancient times Samos was an especially rich and powerful city-state, particularly known for its vineyards and wine production. It is home to Pythagoreion and the Heraion of Samos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the Eupalinian aqueduct, a marvel of ancient engineering. Samos is the birthplace of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, after whom the Pythagorean theorem is named, the philosopher Epicurus, and the astronomer Aristarchus of Samos, the first known individual to propose that the Earth revolves around the sun. Samian wine was well known in antiquity, and is still produced on the island.

  • Definitely a nice little seaside resort of kokkari should include. Reminds me of Bodrum u. Rent a car to explore the island alone. The port as soon as rent a car companies are staying across the street and prices. There's no accounting for taste colors and that's for sure but I like everybody in an old village of Manolates, something no doubt in my mind. This village is top at one point hence the need to drive maximum attention on the way out. Although sitting in the balcony of the houses a touristic village village residents. Before returning in espresso and Turkish style made sure the Greek coffee.

  • Beautiful and picturesque part of the rock to the splits in two, the beautiful bays, the shops, the beach. A very nice combination of component of Samos island. Located in thriving tourist development, but that has not aloiwsei the beauty and charm of the landscape. An abundance of shops catering to choose from or coffee bars to cool off after bathing. The beach however is not special. Deserve a mesimeri (for swimming and lunch) or a night (for a picturesque and romantic dinner).
