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.

We have been to Samos 4 times now. The last 3 times we visited the Hera Temple. Why? Didn't you see it the first time? Yes we did! But even if we are not especially interested in archeology, we find it so nice walking around...More

I was really impressed with the site. Prior to our visit we had been told there wasn't much to see, but that is totally wrong! Well worth the 6 Euro entry fee.
