Fournoi is an archipelago of small Greek islands that lie between the islands of Ikaria, Samos and Patmos on the North Aegean. The island's main town, also called Fournoi, is also the island's main ferry port. In earlier times Fourni was called Korseon and was the site of pirates. Rich in history, the unspoilt island has many ancient remains located all around the island that date back to the Ionians, Classical and Hellenistic periods. Popular with visitors are the ruins of the ancient temple at Kamari and the remains of dwellings on the sea bed, the Cyclopean wall with traces of an Acropolis on the Hill of Ai Giorgis, the ancient quarry at Petrokopio and the shrine to Poseidon at Agia Triada. The main income source for the island's inhabitants is from fishing, agriculture and farming and of course, tourism. There are a number of beautiful beaches on the island such as Vlychada, Vitsilia, Petrokopio, Elidaki and Bali.
The tourist resort and port of Karlovassi is one of the most popular towns on the Greek island of Samos which lies in the north Aegean Sea. The island has a rich history and was home to the mathematician, Pythagoras, the astronomer Aristarchus and the philosopher Epicurus. The town is an important trading hub for the Aegean region and was home to a significant naval fleet in ancient history.
The town is in the north of the island and up until the 20th century it was perhaps best known for its tobacco manufacturing and tannery. A popular attraction in the town is the Tannery Museum which shows the town's long history in tannery which stretches back to ancient times. On display in the museum are tools and methods of leather processing and also the locations of the many tanneries that were located on Samos during the 20th century. There are some fine examples of neoclassical mansions in the town which can be seen alongside the remains of large stone factories at the "Ormos" seaside.
Ferries operating from the town's port depart to Piraeus, Chios, Fournoi, Agios Kirikos, Evdilos, Syros and Kavala.
