Does anyone know if there is a ferry on October 4 (Tuesday) from Samos to Mykonos. I kept on checking Greekferries.gr website, but it looks like they only have it till the last Tuesday in September. I am so worried because Oct.4 is less than 4 weeks away and I am now suspicious that maybe there is no ferry.
I don't know whether to continue to wait not knowing if the schedule is published later or there is just no ferry, in which case, I should change my itinerary.
If anyone of you know what the situation is is, please help me out with the info.

Hello Does anyone know the dates for the Samos Wine Festival for 2010?
Does anyone know how far it is from the Port Pythagoria to the airport and are there lots of buses or would I need to get a taxi. My ferry gets in at 12.55 and flight goes at 15.25.
What is the distance between Samos and Kusadasi, how long does it take via ferry? what port does one leaves from when going to Kusadasi? and one last question. How far is the airport from the port.
HI - My original plan was to go to Kos - I am currently in Greece - then take the ferry to Samos and from there go to Kusadasi and continue up to Istanbul by bys - I am told there are no longer ferries between Kos and Samos in this season, by an agent for the grand lines -Are there local services? Are there ferries between Kusadasi-Samos? If there are no ferries between Kos and Samos I might have to go inland to Bodrum, up to Kusadasi then on to Samos - Thank you for your help - Jean
Hi!!! I have a few questions:)
We are planning to visit the greek islands in June, 2009. The starting point is Samos. We want to spend 1 week in the islands, the two islands we want to visit are Mykonos & Santorini. The greek ferries havent declared their timetables yet:(
1. From Samos what kind of a route should we plan?
2. How many days in which island? Which other islands (on our way) worth seeing?
3. Are there any restaurants & pensions (not expensive) that you can reccomend?
4. Should we book on line or is arriving on the island and finding a place to stay better?
5. Approximately how much the hotels, ferries and lunch/dinners cost?
6. Is night life expensive?
7. any other tips?
Hi -I am trying to book a ferry from Piraeus to Samos via the web, but no matter what site I use, I cannot find Samos under destination options. Is it known by any other name? Is it impossible to get there from Piraeus?
We are seeking an overnight ferry with quarters...
From which country are the tourists that go in Samos? Is it a destinations for youngs 25-30 years old?
What is the situation about the nightlife in Samos?
I trying to find a way of getting to Turkey from Samos. I know there are some ferries from May to October, but I need it for March. Is there any alternative? Do you think I could reach an agreement with a local owner of a boat to take me there? Is this common?
Thanks in advance
Hello all - Flying into Samos Sept 13 arrive 16:05 - ferry to Kusadasi leaves at 17:00.
Several questions- is it possible to get a taxi at Samos airport and make it to the ferry? Appears to be several sites to purchase ferry tickets but ISTA travel seems to be the major source? What is the cost and how long does it take to process out of Samos? Can not find a web site for ISTA. Can ferry tickets be purchased in advance?
Any advice or recommendations would be welcome.
I'm going to Samos on Thursday, can't wait!!! Am I right in thinking that Samos has a music festival in Pagondas this bank holiday weekend? Which day(s) is it on?
Also is the weather likely to be sunshine/showers over the next week or so, I've seen some bad predictions on the internet lately.
I have already looked on the VT-Travelguide about Samos, but couldn't find an appropriate hotel or pension in Pythagorion.
Who knows a hidden gem (pension or small hotel) ??
If possible with website and/or email.
Can someone please give exact date of the wine festival held in Samos Town, I know its some time in August but which dates ????
Does anyone rent out sailing dinghys on Samos? If so who, where and how much.
Any replies very much appreciated!
Hi! We need to get from Kusadasi in Izmir to either Mykonos or Athens in April this year. So far we have only been able to find a (rather expensive!) ferry that goes from Kusadasi to Samos. A couple of questions:
1) From Samos is there any ferry that we can take to get to Mykonos or Athens? So far none of the major ferry websites like and seem to have such an option. In fact, how DOES one get out of Samos by ferry to any of the other major Greek islands? Is Samos being listed under another name on the websites?
2) Alternatively, is there any ferry that goes straight from Kusadasi to Mykonos or Athens (or any other major Greek island)?
Being able to book the tickets online or at least book in advance would be a great plus. Thanks in advance for the help! Really appreciated.
Is there a gym in samos town?
We intend to stay in Samos and Patmos, starting mid May 2007.
We have to fly into Samos and to take a ferry (or hydrofoil) to Patmos.
Who can help with information about the schedules in May and where to find more information (website ??).
We are two women who have a flight to Samos in August but haven't booked any accommodation yet. We will probably spend the first two nights and last night in Samos but we would love to visit other islands too. Neither of us have been to Greece so would appreciate any information please. Would we have trouble getting accommodation on any of the Isands, we are not too fussy and don't want to spend much? Where should we go, is it safe, etc.
Any ideas would be great,
The photo of the steep climb up to a Cave. Where is this ? It looks stunning.
I am thinking of booking a holiday in Pythagorion, but the travel brochure says that there may be some noise from the airport.
Is it really much of a problem? I can't imagine there would be that many flights.
Going to Samos 18 Aug 05, Any recommended things to do or see whilst we are there? Would appreciate any opinions on Anthis apartments & Pythagorion in general. Are there any especially good tavernas & cocktail bars that we should visit?
All comments gratefully received.
