SAMOS TRAVEL GUIDE

Samos... The Island of Pythagoras, Goddess Hera, Aristarchus, and many legends... The starting point of my Greece adventures...

Probably, you did not see Samos(Σάμoς) on the “Top 10 Greek Islands to Visit” lists. Furthermore, Samos was not one of the highlighted Greek Islands’, many travel guides and travel blogs that you have read before.

But this island has a charm of its own and I am here to share with you in my detailed Samos Travel Guide.

One of the greenest and most fertile of all Aegean Islands, Samos is appealing with its history, traditional villages, archaeological sites, crystal clear waters, green mountains, emerald beaches, and even more great food.
