Tropical beaches, rolling mountains, pine forests and vineyards
Samos is considered to be a safe destination, but the height of the tourist season usually sees an increase in petty theft, especially in the more crowded tourist areas. Visitors are encouraged not to carry valuables on them. Violent crime is infrequent, but there have been incidents on some Greek islands, and lone visitors are advised not to accept lifts from strangers. Samos has one of the lowest crime rates in the EU.
