In the Footsteps of Pythagoras
Boasting an enchanting fusion of island bliss and cultural wealth, Samos is an island for adventurers and bon vivants alike: sun, sea and countless sights provide ideal prerequisites for a multi-facetted and action-filled dream holiday.
Samos is located very near the Turkish mainland. The Greek island in the Aegean Sea, north of the Dodecanese islands, is the birthplace of mathematician Pythagoras. With a plethora of ancient architectural ruins on offer, it is a treasure trove for fans of Greek antiquity. Samos is home to Heraion, a significant antique sanctuary dedicated to the goddess Hera. The Hera Temple, of which sadly only few ruins remain, was one the largest temples of antiquity. Together with the town of Pythagorio, Heraion has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
