Samos has got high mountains, like the Kerketefmountain in the west, which is with its 1437 meter one of the highest mountains in the Aegean sea, and the 1150 meter high Ampelos mountain in the middle of the island. If you want to see pictures and read about a couple of mountain villages (Ampelos, Pirgos and Koumaradei)you can click here. There is also another very picturesque village close by that is called Vourliotes, with its colourful painted houses and churches. You can follow the signs in the area of the northern coastal villages of Kampos, Avlakia and Agios Konstantinos to get there.

In the west are the villages of Paleochori, Kallithea and Drakei which are destinations for the people that are looking for the isolated beaches. In the east of Samos the roads from the village of Palaiokastro with its many churches leads to a district with plenty of beautiful churches and the monasteries of Agia Zoni en Zoodochou Pigis and several pebble beaches (see the extra long beach section in the menu).

The landscape of Samos is very green, especially in the north along the coast and in the west of the island. Around the mountainvillages of Pirgos and Koumaradei there are still the visible scars of recent bush fires, and naked tree-trunks stand in the middle of green bushes, small new trees and flowers. In Samos there are many pieces of pinetree forest and olive groves, and also many wild flowers and wild herbs grow on the island. It is an exceptionally green island.

Between the villages of Pythagorion and Heraion, old historic places that are on the Unesco world heritidge list, there is a regular busservice. The village of Pythagorion was named Tigani untill 1955 and is situated at the southeast coast, near the airport of Samos. The villages of Vathy and Karlovassi are in the north of the island.

Samos can be easily reached from other Greek islands by ferry, for instance from Rhodes and Kos. Some Products of the island are tabacco, wine, olive oil and citrusfruit. Especially the sweet white wine of Samos is famous.
