Located on the Greek island of Ikaria in the North Aegean Sea, Evdilos is a village that was originally the first capital of the island. However, today the charming village with its small port is an important port town and the centre of the northern, central and western Ikaria. The village is characterised by narrow streets, old mansions and is regarded as perhaps one of the most architecturally traditional settlements on the island.
The town's port serves the north side of the island and is one of two ports serving Ikaria, with the other being Agios Kirykos. From the port there are daily ferry services to Samos and Piraeus and is linked to the other islands and ports serving commercial vessels visiting the island. The port is a short distance from the town centre where visitors can find shops, hotels, villas and restaurants. Adjacent to the port there is a marina serving small ships, boats and fishing boats. The port is located around 35 km from the island's airport.
The tourist resort and port of Karlovassi is one of the most popular towns on the Greek island of Samos which lies in the north Aegean Sea. The island has a rich history and was home to the mathematician, Pythagoras, the astronomer Aristarchus and the philosopher Epicurus. The town is an important trading hub for the Aegean region and was home to a significant naval fleet in ancient history.
The town is in the north of the island and up until the 20th century it was perhaps best known for its tobacco manufacturing and tannery. A popular attraction in the town is the Tannery Museum which shows the town's long history in tannery which stretches back to ancient times. On display in the museum are tools and methods of leather processing and also the locations of the many tanneries that were located on Samos during the 20th century. There are some fine examples of neoclassical mansions in the town which can be seen alongside the remains of large stone factories at the "Ormos" seaside.
Ferries operating from the town's port depart to Piraeus, Chios, Fournoi, Agios Kirikos, Evdilos, Syros and Kavala.
