On the great Acropolis (citadel) of Sami you will see the ruins of the Ancient City of Sami, where the suitors started to conquer Penelope, Odysseus’s wife, who was waiting for him to return from the Trojan War, back to Ithaca..

The nearby village of Karavomylos is probably the most peaceful and beautiful place of the island, featuring an absolutely magnificent lake, with ducks and geese swimming beside the 'Old Mill'. The road connecting the two villages is amazing for walking about and let your self gaze at the stars while listening to the sea. The famous and 'must see' Mellisani Lake is a few meters above Karavomylos, is a jewel of nature that impresses the visitor.
