Samos Island Package: This Greek island is a great example of the laid back and relaxed ambiance most of the Greek islands enjoy. Birthplace of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, this island is well known for its’ vineyards and production of wine. Plenty of café bars, tavernas and souvenir shops can be found in the small resorts which dot the coastline and are perfect to browse or relax in while enjoying a Greek aperitif.
The boat sails to Vathy or Samos town, the capital of the island and you can choose to stay in a hotel here or in Pythagorion, Kerveli Village or Kokkari.
