For all those who plan to travel to Kefalonia it might be useful to know that Kefalonia has a perfect position to travel a little bit around and to visit neighbors islands. There are several local travel agincies that offer one day trips to Ithaka, Lefkada, Scorpio, Meganissi, but only one of them organizes a trip to Zante. So I’m using this opportunity to recommend to all of you Avalon Kefalonia Travel Services. They are highly professional, have a great guides, and it was a real pleasure to travel around with them.
Once on island don’t miss to visit Assos, beautiful picturesque village with special atmosphere, for me it was more impressive than Fiscardo, and of course Melissani Lake and Mytros beach. Argostoli is a nice little town worth seeing, but all beautiful sandy beaches in this part of island are at Lassi, so it might be a perfect combination to stay in Lassi and go to Argostoli by night.
Don’t miss to pay a visit at Oskars restaurant for a meal it is the best on the island.
If you want to go to Paliki peninsula, there is a regular ferry service between Argostoli and Lixuri.
Of course once on island don’t miss to try their famous Robola wine.
