Turkey is a country bordering both Southeast Europe and Western Asia, with coastlines facing the Black Sea to the north, Mediterranean to the south and the Aegean to the west.
Given its location between the two continents, Turkey has long been admired for its diverse cultural heritage, helping it become one of the most visited countries in the world. Examples of the country’s exciting history are commonplace, most notably in the majestic mosques of Istanbul and the captivating ruins of Ephesus.
Its natural scenery varies enormously, too, from sandy beaches on the west coast to massive mountains in the east, offering a wide range of outdoor activities if you want to escape the bustling bazaars in the cities.
Turkey has a number of ports along its coast and, due to the amount of islands in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, it offers numerous ferry crossings to a wide range of international destinations, as well as domestic routes from Istanbul across the Sea of Marmara.
Samos is one of the most famous islands in Greece, close to the Turkish coast in the Aegean Sea, separated by the mile-wide Mycale Strait.
Steeped in history of legendary proportion, Samos is believed to be the birthplace of Greek Goddess, Hera. Consequently, the ruinous Heraion, once the largest temple in Greece, is one of the top attractions. Famous mathematician, Pythagoras was also born here. But, beyond the historical significance of Samos lies one of the most physically appealing islands in the Aegean, with an endless choice of typically beautiful, Mediterranean beaches with warm, clear waters.
The capital and largest town, Vathy has plenty of lively bars and restaurants, but most visitors head to the stunning port village of Pythagorio for its traditional architecture and sublime seafront views.
Greece is one of the easiest countries to travel by ferry, due to the high concentration of islands in the Aegean Sea. Samos has a few ports which are served by a range of excellent ferry operators, sailing from a huge number of domestic cities and archipelagos.
