Samos is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, lying just off the west coast of Turkey.
Samos was a particularly rich and powerful city-state in ancient Greece, renowned for its top quality vineyards and for being the birthplace of the famous mathematician, Pythagoras.
Nowadays, it’s regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the Aegean, boasting pure white sandy beaches, picturesque villages and charming fishing harbours. It is also known for producing excellent sweet Muscat wines.
It has a number of fascinating landmarks, too, including the largest temple in the country in the town of Heraion. Another highlight is the Eupalinos aqueduct, an amazing feat of ancient Greek engineering; a tunnel reaching over 1,000 metres long with only a few feet open to the public.
Thanks to the island’s location in the Aegean Sea, Samos is a useful departure point for a great number of destinations. It has a few ports along its coastline where you can sail to other Greek islands and the mainland.
Ikaria is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea, sitting approximately one hundred kilometres from the west coast of Turkey.
Life on Ikaria is so peaceful, it’s enlisted as one of five ‘blue zones’ in the world, a place where people live significantly longer than average. This is thanks to the island’s isolated location, Mediterranean cuisine and beautiful landscapes comprising vast mountains, forested gorges and secluded beaches.
Named after Icarus, the legendary architect who flew too close to the sun, and the supposed birthplace of Dionysus, god of wine, Ikaria is one of the most magical and fascinating Greek islands, too.
Given the amount of islands in the Aegean Sea, there are many ferry routes to Ikaria departing from a great number of destinations including the surrounding Greek archipelagos and the mainland.
