Samos Island Sightseeing

Samos Island Sightseeing


Samos is a large island that has something for everyone: from large beach resorts to rustic villages, forests and interesting sightseeing. As Samos is an island with a long history, there are many sights that date from ancient times, such as the Sanctuary of Heraion and the Tunnel of Eupalinus. A very interesting sight to visit in Samos is also the Monastery of Panagia Spiliani, located above Pythagorion. Apart from swimming in fantastic beaches and strolling around villages, Samos is a great place for hiking. Many hiking paths cross the green forests in the center of the island, leading to waterfalls and secluded coves.

Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion

In the past, the Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion was housed in the Town Hall of Pythagorion, but in May 2010 a new building was inaugurated. This new building is located in the city center of Pythagorion and next to the site of the ancient town of Samos.

Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion

The Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion houses about 3,000 items that were found in excavations in the ancient town of Samos and in other excavations around the island. These exhibits show the historical course of the island from the 5th millennium B.C. till the 7th century A.D. and depict the political importance of Samos in the ancient times.

The exhibits of the museum include marble statues, coins, parts of buildings and temples, ceramic vases, jewelry and other items that show the cultural development of the island and its connection to the towns in mainland Greece and Asia Minor.
