The island of Samos belongs to the N.E. Aegean Islands and is just about a mile off the Turkish coast.
It is a fairly small island with a coastline of approx 100 miles, the main town is the islands Capital Samos Town.
Less than 10 miles away from Samos Town is the islands main resort Pythagorean, this was our location for what turned out to be a very distressing holiday, which had to be curtailed due to the serious illness and subsequent death of my Dad.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very quiet and very fertile island
  • Cons:Basic Greek accommodation (Always expected in Greece)
  • In a nutshell:Can only really offer an opinion on Pythagorean
  • Last visit to Samos: May 2004

    My first time flying and I have to go to Samos-this landing is definately not for the faint hearted!! Would go again though!

    Oh, those giro souvlaki!!! Could just eat one now. Sounds like the usual Kosmar accommodation. Have you landed at Skiathos? That's definitely an intersting landing.
