Lush, fertile Samos is the Aegean’s larder

With grapes, honey, olives, fruit and almonds in abundance. It’s picture-postcard stuff as rolling hills, steep cliffs and long beaches give way to pure blue seas. The island was once the home town of Pythagoras (but don’t let that put you off), and today it’s better known as the home of some award-winning Greek wine (as chosen by the Vatican).
