Located on the Greek island of Ikaria in the North Aegean Sea, Evdilos is a village that was originally the first capital of the island. However, today the charming village with its small port is an important port town and the centre of the northern, central and western Ikaria. The village is characterised by narrow streets, old mansions and is regarded as perhaps one of the most architecturally traditional settlements on the island.
The town's port serves the north side of the island and is one of two ports serving Ikaria, with the other being Agios Kirykos. From the port there are daily ferry services to Samos and Piraeus and is linked to the other islands and ports serving commercial vessels visiting the island. The port is a short distance from the town centre where visitors can find shops, hotels, villas and restaurants. Adjacent to the port there is a marina serving small ships, boats and fishing boats. The port is located around 35 km from the island's airport.
Samos Town, or Vathi, is the capital of the Greek island of Samos which lies in the beautiful Aegean Sea. The town is situated on the eastern shores of the island and is constructed around a horse shoe shaped bay. Ano Vathi, the old town, was built like an amphitheatre around the island's natural harbour, and is the island's main port. Strolling around the town visitors will be charmed by its authentic narrow streets, lined with neoclassical buildings, that contains an archaeological museum and shops selling crafts and jewellery. Contained in the Archaeological Museum visitors will see a collection of the largest surviving examples of Kouros sculpture. Also in the town, and perfect for relaxing in, are a good selection of waterfront tavernas and cafes.
From the town's port, ferry services operate to the Greek mainland and to many other Greek islands with conventional and high speed ferries. Destinations include Piraeus, Icaria, Chios, Mytiline, the Cyclades, the islands of the North Aegean and the Dodecanese Islands.
