One of the most beautiful experiences that Samos can offer you. After 10-15 minutes of walking on a wonderful path, you reach the 1st waterfall. The hike to the last waterfall is an adventure in itself. Better not to bring backpacks, the ideal is a swimsuit t-shirt and a towel to dry that you can leave on the stones before diving. Such a fabulous experience!

4. Psili Ammos Beach

A short guided tour in the underground aqueduct of ancient Samos. You will walk in a tunnel lit by torches, on grates that allow you to look at the underlying tunnel states. Definitely unmissable. Unfortunately, it is absolutely not suitable for those suffering from claustrophobia.

8. Pythagoras Statue
