The island of Samos has plenty to offer travellers looking for a relaxing break in the Aegean. It might be just off the coast of Turkey, but Samos is 100% Greek. As well as relaxing resorts and buzzing towns like Vathi and Pythagoreio, Samos has plenty in terms of rural charm. There are rugged mountains, secluded bays, and rolling vineyards which produce the island’s signature dessert wine, Samos Vin Doux. It’s the perfect destination for a sunny summer holiday.
Airports in Samos
The only airport on the island of Samos is (unsurprisingly) Samos International Airport (SMI) which sometimes goes by the name Aristarchos. It boasts one of Europe’s most exciting landing with mountains on one side of the short runway and sea on the other.
Airlines that fly to Samos
Germania Airlines and Thomson Airways both fly direct to Samos from the UK on a seasonal basis. During the low season it’s likely that you’ll have to fly via Athens or Thessaloniki.
Getting to your destination
While local buses are available on Samos they have a very Mediterranean timetable, and aren’t as regular as you would perhaps hope. Taxis are available from outside the terminal building, and are a good option if you’re heading straight into the town of Pythagoreio. It’s a wise idea to hire a car: especially if you’re staying in one of the island’s more secluded areas. Budget, Europcar and Hertz all have stands at the airport.
