..last year we booked into the samos hotel just on the right as you come of the ferry we had to 4 hours to kill ,before the ferry left ,as we had done all we wanted to do and were knackered ,and just wanted a kip,you should have seen the looks we got from the hotel staff gave us,because we booked a room for a few hours.:doh:
We went overnight to Samos and it was great we stayed in Pythagorio its a nice small town on the coast with a nice marina which comes alive at night the bars and restaurants are reasonably priced and the food was very good.We stayed in a little pension 1 minute walk from the marina and it was reasonably priced and very clean,if you want details PM me.
There's a new fast ferry (45 minutes) to Samos starting tomorrow. They have a website, although currently it is only in Turkish, but I understand they are working on getting it in to English also:http://www.hizlisamosferibotu.com/ Departs Kusadasi every morning at 09:00, leaves Vathi at 20:10 on a weeknight to come back to Kusadasi. On weekends it departs Kusadasi also at 09:00 but departs from Pythagorian in Samos at 20:10 to come back to Kusadasi. Tel: 0256 614 4463 for more info
