Samos

Green Island

An island of volcanic mountains and terraced vineyards, Samos lies near the Turkish mainland and serves as a convenient resting point on the route between Athens and Izmir. Rich in history and culture, Samos experienced its golden age as a powerful and wealthy independent state long before Athens expanded its influence as the region's principal urban center. In modern times, the island has become a popular holiday destination, known mostly for its beaches, coastal paths, and ancient sites. The island's top attractions include the World Heritage-listed remains of a vast sanctuary devoted to Hera and a 2,500-year-old aqueduct, regarded as one of the highest achievements of ancient engineering.
