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.
Turkey is on the Mediterranean in Western Asia, with a small section in Southeastern Europe, with the Mediterranean Sea on the Southwest, the Aegean Sea on the West and the Black Sea on the North.
As the cradle of cultures and civilisations connecting Europe and Asia, Turkey is well known to have accumulated a large cultural heritage of historic sites and archaeological wonders. However, apart from the historical relics, there’s much more to be admired, from its soaring mountains and fertile valleys, to its sleepy villages and white sand beaches, all as part of the Turkish legacy.
