The village is located between Samos town and Chora and does not resemble an tourist attraction at first glance. The attraction is based on its ambience which is best experienced by enjoying a meal or a Frappé at the town square.
It is worth to notice that it is not set in scene for the benefit of the tourists, but very much a result of Mitilini being a living village.
It is recommended to try to visit the village square on one of the Saturday evenings where the locals gather for a meal, music and dance. Again this is not a touristic even, but entirely for their own benefit.
