Confused about where to go on holiday? Pythagorion has the winning formula. Great café culture and nightlife plus a coarse sandy beach and calm blue sea equal a great holiday in Pythagorion.
And that's the last of the cheesy mathematical allusions. But the island's most popular tourist resort was the birthplace of Pythagoras.
It's hard to believe that this busy, yet laid back resort hides more than twenty-six centuries of Greek history. There are several archaeological sites round about that are well worth a visit.
On a baking hot day, go down the cool Efpalino tunnel, built between 529 and 524 by 14,000 slaves. It's both an amazing feat and a welcome respite from the heat.
Standing on the ancient capital of Samos, today Pythagorion offers great tavernas, bars and shops along the harbour front promenade. You can spend hours over a meal of freshly caught fish and local wine while people watching.
If you prefer to be close to the action and love the beach too, then stay at the delightful Hotel Kouros Bay, or treat yourself to the Hotel Doryssa Bay with its trendy beach bar.
For self catering holidays in Pythagorion, check out the modern Santa Catherina Studios or friendly Nikos Studios which are a little further from the resort centre.
It's easy to get around too, with buses to Samos Town and taxis and boats from the harbour front for a little Aegean island hopping.
Summer holidays in Pythagorion are such a relaxing and rejuvenating affair that you'll want to return for more. So don't be square, book now!
