Samos, North Aegean Islands
The island of Samos is located in the eastern Aegean Sea the birthplace of Hera, wife of Zeus (according to Greek mythology). Only one pillar remains of the three temples built in the sixth century in his honor in the UNESCO World Heritage village of Heraião.

The best places to admire the island is from the peaks of the Kerkis and Ambelos hills.

Be sure to try Samos's sweet muscat, especially during the wine festival in early August in the city of Vathy. The muscat grape is a historical grape said to have been used in ancient Greece.

You'll find countless varieties of ancient vineyards that, thanks to their isolation, thrived while the vineyards of the rest of Europe were destroyed by the phylloxera plague in the 19th century.
