Samos is one of the most fortunate of the Greek islands in the Aegean Archipelago with its variety of natural beauties (Samos Potami), its long and rich history and its lively economy. The natural attractions of Samos do not stop at a few picturesque old ports or fine beaches. Samos also has rugged mountain scenery to offer the visitor and peaceful, fertile plains.

Samos’s location played a great role in its development. It lies in the Eastern Aegean, very close to the coast of Asia Minor (to witch it was joined until earthquakes brought about a separation), in the heart of Ionia, almost midway along the sea route that links Greece with Anatolia, the Black Lack Sea, Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Samos, the birthplace of Pythagoras, Aristarchus and Epicurus, is one of the biggest islands. Its unique natural, the climate and the archaeological interest have turned this island in a distinct resort and a historical treasure that gathers many tourists.


The ancients called Samos ‘Isle of the Blessed’ “Tiny terracotta-roofed villages, sweet smelling forests carpeted in wild flowers, endless beaches. It’s easy to see why.
