Samos

(3.9/5 based on 3,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, nature, historic sites

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. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Samos and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
