Which of the Beautiful Cities in Samos is the Best?
People also call this largest capital city in the island, which lies in the northeast of the Island of Samos, Samos.
However, the ancient city of Samos is now the City of Pythagorio, built on the place of the ancient city. The City of Vathy is about 9.9 kilometres at the northeast of the second big City of Pythagorio and it takes about 15 minutes drive.
In Ano Vathy at the south of the city are houses with red tiles from the 19th century on the hillside. All kinds of restaurants, cafés and bars are at the harbour side. This is a hot place in the hot season and some tourists may escape it sometimes to calmer places.
There are four palm trees and a statue in the central square of the city, called Plateia Pythagorou. It lies just right near the ferry terminal and reachable by taking the street of Themistokleous Sofouli, beside the waterfront.
The Commercial Bank is at the east of the square of Plateia Pythagorou. The National Bank of Greece is at the south of Plateia Pythagorou, and there are ATMs there. The bus station, KTEL in Ioannou Lekti is few metres from the waterfront.
At a short walking distance after a block lie the municipal gardens. The small beaches are at the north of many hotels near the waterfront at the eastern part of the Bay and at the western part of it. See beautiful beaches in Samos.
The third attraction beside the municipal gardens and the old quarter of the city in Ano Vathy at the south of the beautiful city of Samos is the Archaeological Museum.
It exhibits items from the era of Polycrates, including "kouros", the male statue from the archaic time; brought the museum from Ireon beside other statues, bronze sculptures and pottery.
In the hot seasons, when touristy traffic climaxes, you may find difficulties in getting a room in the beautiful Vathy City.
However, there are beautiful hotels to stay in the City of Vathy such as Aeolis Hotel, Galaxy Hotel, Pythagoras Hotel and Mirini Hotel.

Beautiful Pythagorio City is important town in Samos. It is one of the beautiful cities in Samos and it has about 1,327 inhabitants.
They built it on the site of the ancient city of Samos with remains from the time of Polycrates and a settlement from the Neolithic period.
The first is the Heraion of Samos, an ancient sanctuary built for Hera, the wife and sister of Zeus, which lies about 6 kilometres southwest of the city.
The Heraion of Samos and the Eupalinos Tunnel are both in the UNSCO's list of the World Heritage Sites from Samos since 1992.
Beautiful Pythagorio City is the second port in the southeastern coast of the beautiful Samos Island. It receives most of the sea traffic in this area from the other Beautiful Greek Islands, at the south of it on the Aegean Sea. Busses connect it to the capital city and other beautiful villages in Samos.
There are both expensive apartments along the harbour and cheap pensions on the streets behind them. Some beaches in the area of Pythagorio City are nearby the harbour.
The main street, Lykourgou Logotheti is at the left nearby the waterfront filled by travel agencies, supermarkets and city-bicycle and city-motorcycle outlets and car rentals.
The bus stop is at the south of it and the central square, Plateia Irinis is at a walking distance from there. Remains of the Castle of Lykourgos Logothetis from 1824 are at the southern part of Metamorfosis Sotiros.
Pythagorio Museum is at the city hall behind Plateia Irinis and it exhibits finds from Ireon, a place in the city where Hera was born. They call it the Heraion of Samos and the ancient sanctuary is in the southern part of Samos.
The Ireon is about 7 kilometres southwest of the ancient city and on the Valley of Imbrasos River before it empties its water in the sea. The ruins of Aphrodite are at a place between Lykourgou Logotheti and the parking.
There is an ancient theatre at the northeast of the centre of the city and at the right. After it, you will find the monastery of Moni Panagias Silianis. They call it the Monastery of the Virgin of the Grotto.
Following the city walls from this location, you will reach the Evpalinos Tunnel or Eupalinian aqueduct, as also called. People coming from Samos City to Pythagorio City see also signs of the southern part of the tunnel.
Evpalinos Tunnel is one of the engineering constructions of the ancient Greek era. They built it in 524 BC to preserve and distribute the waters from the mountain to the city.
