We couldn’t believe how large this area was. We went by coach with TUI who provided us with an archaeologist who really made it interesting. Fabulous place.

Glad to visit this heritage site, but is neglected and need lots of attention to detail. It’s basically run down and if I was part of the government I would be deeply embarrassed to let it be in the condition it is.

I would not bother with this site. It is overrun with vegetation and badly needs some TLC. There are much better places to go on Samos that this one.

A great site but is really showing a lack of care and maintenance, quite complicated to work out,the information boards are not very clear , the whole are of Pythagorion is an open air museum.

You can walk there easily from Pythagorion in about 15 min or so, just follow the beach in Southwest direction. The entrance fee was around €5 p.p. There is no guide, but there are somewhat informative signs scattered... More
