Nice concert in an ancient area

We headed here on one of the nights with live music. It was to dark to really see the Temple, but the music and the atmosphere was nice.

We booked a half day trip via our Thompson's rep and we were really glad we did. Our local guide Irene was so knowledgable and really helped us to get the best out of our visit. The temple of Hera site was wonderful but in addition we were taken to a working monastery, a local pottery and a herb shop... More

The Temple of Hera is a great site. It is at first blush, underwhelming due to the state of the ruins, but if you take a moment, read the signs , wander and ask the very knowledgeable Staff a few questions, you'll be drawn to this site and its history. There is a great single column still standing; a very... More

Very interesting to see the Ancient History of the Island by visiting this site and the Archeological Museum in Samos Town. Only 3 Euro's for each visit and very well worth it. Was impressed with the detail of what was displayed in front of us

It's a vast site, with remains from many different eras and it makes you realise what an interesting and varied history the island had. It's really close to the beach,... More

This is one of the many archaeological sites in and around Pythagorion but only one of the few of such a significance. It's a vast space with ruins of Heraion of Samos- a large sanctuary to the goddess Hera. There's plenty of architectural elements still remaining that you can walk around and explore, giving you a perfect photographic subject. I... More
