THE TOWN OF SAMOS

The island’s capital and main port, Samos is built on a slope and retains its past splendour in the neoclassical architecture of its waterfront buildings and artfully designed jetty. Don’t miss a stroll in Ano Vathy, the town’s old quarter and in Zoodohou Pigis monastery on top of mount Rabaidoni, for a vertiginous view of the town and the Turkish shores of Asia Minor.

KARLOVASI

This large, sparsely populated town, 32 km West of Samos is worth visiting for its vibrant nightlife and the remains of large tanneries, once the source the area’s prosperity. A walk in Old Karlovasi’s narrow streets is totally worth it.

PYTHAGOREIO

This charming village, overlooking the old harbour in the island’s South, hosts the ruins of Byzantine fortifications and of Roman baths. From there, visit the island’s main archaeological attraction, the Eupalinos Aqueduct.

EUPALINOS AQUEDUCT

Samos’ ancient aqueduct, built in the 6th century BC is a wonder of engineering in its own right. Its 3,100 ft. tunnel, carved at a depth of 240 ft. under the mountainside, brought fresh water to the island’s dry southern reaches.

THE HERAION OF SAMOS

The temple of Heraion, one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, was built in the 6th century BC and was –according the historian Herodotus- the largest religious structure in ancient Greece. Of its 155 Ionian columns, only one survives today.
