To my big surprise I found out on Instagram, where I have the chance to interact with so many of you, that many people are interested in the beautiful island of Samos and were asking for my best Samos travel tips. I promised to write them down and share all my Samos knowledge on The Viennese Girl blog, so here we go.

How to get around in Samos
If you intend to explore the island and you don’t want to spend your holidays just relaxing in your hotel, you will need to rent a car. Samos is not a small island, public transportation doesn’t help that much and cabs are quite expensive. Unless you decide you’ll spend all you money on taxis…
Where to stay in Samos
If I had to choose where to stay I would stay in Pythagorio.You can understand why if you check my photos here. If you are looking for a seaside resort, then check Doryssa Seaside Resort. My favourite hotel in Samos is Proteas Blu Resort.
MY BEST SAMOS TRAVEL TIPS
My favourite cafes in Pythagorio: Enigma (they don’t have a website) and 2spoons
Shopping in Samos: Remember to visit my friends Stella and Eva who have the loveliest fashion store in Pythagorio called 2the little store.
Villages by the sea: Pythagorio, Kokkari and Ireon
Locals says that the best taverna in Samos is Triantafillos. It is located in Palaiokastron. I went there last summer and it was super nice and the food was amazing. Just remember to reserve a table to avoid last minute disappointments.
There is an open air cinema in Mitilinious village. No matter what film they play, this is a unique experience on a Greek island.
What I really love: the bakery in Pythagorio. A must visit after midnight. It is on a side street…
BEACH BARS IN SAMOS
If you are looking for beach bars, then head to Asterias in Potokaki and to Navagos in Tsamadu beach. Keep in mind that Samos is not like Mykonos. Of course there are bars and night life but don’t expect to find a wild nightlife scene. I would say that Samos is rather a romantic destination for couples, ideal for families and for group of friends who aren’t party animals 🙂
HISTORY AND CULTURE IN SAMOS
If you are looking for history and culture, then go to the Temple of Hera in Ireon, to the Archeological Museum in Vathi and to the Tunnel of Eupalinos where you also get a very nice view of Pythagorio and of course you will take a picture in front of the statue of Pythagoras.
I hope my Best Samos travel tips will be helpful for planning your next holidays on Samos island. Remember to book your stay in Samos with Booking.com.
If your holidays are over, you are back to your country and have after holidays blues, know that you are not the only one…
