Samos is an island in the North Aegean Sea and one of the East Aegean Islands. Its capital is the town of Samos, formerly known as Vathi. The island lies very close to the Turkish mainland and is a popular stopping off point for travellers between the two countries as it lies on the route between Athens and Izmir. Tourist season in Samos, when you can expect much higher prices, begins the first week of May.

Understand
History
Samos was the birthplace of Pythagoras although he left before beginning his explorations into mathematics. Consequently, the island is littered with various things named after him from the town of Pythagoreion, the ancient capital, to hotels and tavernas. Samos is an island with age-long history. According to mythology, in this Aegean island, in the banks of river Imvrassos, goddess Hera was born. Today, in this location visitors can see the remains of a temple dedicated to her. It is an imposing building, one of the biggest and most important of its era.

Get in By Boat
The principal port of Samos is at Vathi, also called Samos. The other two ports are Karlovassi and Pythagoreion. Ferries from Piraeus and and the Cyclades usually stop at both Vathi and Karlovassi. There's a daily overnight ferry, the 'Nisos Mykonos' to Karlovassi and Vathy from Piraeus, Syros, Mykonos and Ikaria.

Hydrofoils to the Dodecanese islands depart regularly from Vathi and Pithagorion. Samos is also connected with all the islands of the North Aegean and the Dodecanese islands once a week through the shipping route from Alexandroupoli to Rhodes. Finally, Samos is connected on a daily basis more or less thoughout the year with the port of Kusadasi in Turkey with two Greek and two Turkish boats. The trip takes two hours and costs € 35 one-way. Ferries depart at 8:30AM and 5:30PM. In low season, one ferry only departing Kusadasi at 8:30AM and returning from Samos at 4:30PM.

By plane
There are daily flights from Athens airport (55 minutes) by Olympic Air [18] and from Thessaloniki airport (65 minutes) by Astra Airlines [19]. You can also fly into Samos from other Greek islands sush as Chios, Rhodes, Mytilini, Heraklion or Limnos with Sky Express.

From May till October charter airlines fly directly to Samos from several European airports.

Air Berlin flies from many airports in Germany and from Austria and Switzerland;
Jetairfly flies from Belgium;
SmartWings flies from Czech Republic;
Transavia flies from the Netherlands;
Thomson Airways flies from the UK.
Flights arrive near the old capital of Pythagoreion.
The Tunnel of Eupalinos can be visited from the town of Pythagoreion. This is a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of town and is well signposted.
Temple of Hera (Heraion of Samos), (6 km southwest of the ancient city), [1]. The Heraion of Samos was a great sanctuary in the southern region of Samos, 6 km southwest of the ancient city, in a low, marshy river basin near the sea. The Late Archaic Heraion of Samos was the first of the gigantic free-standing Ionic temples, but its predecessors at this site reached back to the Geometric Period of the 8th century BCE,[1] or earlier.[2] The site of temple's ruins, with its sole standing column, was designated a joint UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the nearby Pythagoreion in 1992.
There are beaches, both sandy and shingle, all around the coast so swimming and sunbathing are popular activities. The water is very clear but cold up until May. The nearest major beach to the town of Samos is Gagkou Beach, a fifteen minute walk with the sea on your left from the ferry port. This is a pebble beach but there are areas of sand in the water. You can rent sun loungers and there are bars/cafes on the seafront although you may not be able to consume their food and drink on the beach itself.
Walk the coastal path from Gagkou Beach (see above for directions) through beautiful flora and see the crystal clear coves. From Gagkou beach head over to the half-finished concrete building. Head up the steps of this, cross the first floor and you'll see a path off into the heather from here. You can follow this path for a couple of kilometres until it leads you back to the road. It's a great place to watch the sunset and you can get down to one or two deserted although very small beaches via this path.
There is an attractive beach at Psili Ammos, about 8 kms east of Pythagoreio. It gets very busy in season, but visitors tend to concentrate at the western end, nearest to the tavernas; the eastern side is more open. It is popular with families as the sea is shallow for quite a distance. However, beware of stronger currents farther out. The Turkish coast is just under 1 km away. There is an area of salt marsh and a small lake to the west of the beach area, which dries out into salt pans in the summer. This is a good bird spotting area and flamingoes can be seen early in the season.
Samos has excellent watersports facilities to be found on the long pebble beach at Potokaki which are open all season. Including waterskiing, inflatables and jetski hire.
