Those enjoying family and business holidays in Kefalonia will find its capital, Argostoli, to be a must-visit destination. Along with providing plenty of opportunities for shopping, it has sights to suit all tastes. Read on for three unmissable features of this cultural hub on the Ionian coastline.
Both a nature reserve and an idyllic place for a stroll, Argostoli Harbour offers visitors a chance to see sea turtles feeding. Morning trips to the harbour are ideal, as these magnificent creatures come for scraps when the fishing boats sell their catch. The harbour also has a ferry that can take tourists on a ride over to Lixoruri, while tavernas and cafes can also be found close by.
Lighthouse of Theodori
Those looking for a beautiful walk and outstanding views of the local area will find a trip to Argostoli’s lighthouse unmissable. From the lofty perch atop Theodori, you can see both mountains and sea simultaneously.
