Car itinerary through Argostoli

We start our car itinerary in Argostoli, a small but modern town with all the charm of ancient Greek fishing villages, where you can discover the essence of the Greek islands.

Visit the local markets and stroll by its ports where you can watch the bustle of fishermen going to sea against the backdrop of sea turtles. Start your car itinerary in the northwest of Argostoli by visiting the classic-looking San Teodoro Lighthouse, known as Fanari, and from there, continue 700m to Katavothres, a traditional sea-water mill that will captivate you.

If you want to appreciate the history of this traditional Greek village, then drive to the Argostoli Archaeological Museum and the Folklore and History Museum, where you can discover local artwork.

Next to these museums is one of the most famous symbols of Argostoli, the Drapano Bridge, which is about 900 meters long. To round off the day, we recommend that you visit Makris Gialos Beach, a quiet beach of fine sand only 3.2 kilometers away where you can dive in the crystal clear waters of the Greek islands.

Car itinerary through the main villages of Kefalonia

The island of Kefalonia has 365 villages, one to visit every day of the year.… If your holiday does not last that long, we recommend a car itinerary through the main villages, such as Argostoli, Skala, Sami, Assos and Fiskardo.

We will start our car itinerary in Argostoli and then go southward to the village of Skala. In this quiet corner of the Greek islands we recommend you visit the temple dedicated to the worship of the god Apollo, which dates back to the 7th century BC. Next, pay a visit to the magical cave of Drogarati, a natural wonder more than 10,000 years old and relax and unwind on the Potamakia Beach, where you will see specimens of Caretta turtle if you are lucky.

From Skala, we set off with our rental car 38km north to our next stop, Sami, which features the island's main port for berthing the ferries that connect it with Italy. Here we recommend you take advantage of your trip to the Greek Islands to visit the Acropolis, as well as the Agrilion Monastery for the views it offers of the whole coast, and the Melissani Lake and Cave, a real wonder of nature that has become one of the main attractions of Kefalonia.

Next we continue on to Assos in our rental car, a picturesque and quiet place, perfect to enjoy with the family. This charming town of quiet streets lined with houses with their own gardens features a spectacular fortress built on the seashore by the Venetians as a defense against pirates.
On a pleasant walk from the village port you can pay a visit to the castle with its Renaissance architecture and stroll around Paris Square.

From Assos, we recommend you visit Fiskardo, the most authentic village, set apart by its brightly colored houses and by the remains of an ancient church in ruins dating back to the 11th century. If you want to get away from it all, the beaches of Foki, to the south, or Emplisi, to the north, are a good option, since they are a 5 minute drive from the center.

Fiskardo is one of the most picturesque villages on the island of Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, located in western Greece. In fact, Kefalonia has 365 charming villages (one to visit every day of the year!), some small and some sizeable, each with distinctive defining features.

Fiskardo however, on the northern tip of Kefalonia, enjoys legal protection due to its great beauty, since it is surrounded by gorgeous forests and lined with countless beaches and secret coves.
