BACK ISLAND 's MAP INFOXENIOS E-MAIL

Samos, the easternmost island of the Aegean, is within swimming distance of Asia Minor. Images of the island are framed by brunches of samian grapes, vine leaves and vineyards. The capital, Samos, is built like an amphitheater at the end of a deep bay, next to the harbour of Vathi. Plane trees, springs, and neoclassical buildings coexist harmoniously with modern elements at Karlovassi. Gorgeous beaches at Kokari, pebbled ones at Potami, busy ones at Tsamadou and the best one on the island at Hrissi. Fishing villages with the sandy beaches, mountain villages with picturesque alleways and houses in the charming local style. There are many monasteries on the Samos, such as Megali Panagia, Agia Zoni, Vronta, Panagia Spiliani, Zoodohou Pigi. Finally, to the south is the Pithagorio or Tigani with the ruins of the ancient acropolis and Evpalineio aqueduct, and further south still is the Heraio, dedicated to the worship of Hera.
