The town of Vathi is located on the Greek island of Samos, which lies in the north Aegean Sea, and is the island's largest town and capital. The town was built around a large bay and is full of Aegean colour and atmosphere which is just as well as tourism is the town's main source of income. The town is also home to one of three ports on the island and is located in the centre of the eastern part of the bay which is also called Vathi. Limin Vatheos or Kato Vathi, as the locals call it, is the most lively place on the island, especially during the summer tourist season. There have been many archaeological finds on the island that bear testament to the island's past. Popular with tourists is the historic church of Agios Spyridon, the building that housed the Parliament, the Town Hall and the Archaeological and the Byzantine Museum which are all evidence of the historic past of the island.

From the town's port, ferry services operate to the Greek mainland and to many other Greek islands with conventional and high speed ferries. Destinations include Piraeus, Icaria, Chios, Mytiline, the Cyclades, the islands of the North Aegean and the Dodecanese Islands.
