What people say

" Set alongside a deep bay, Argostoli has a funky charm that grows on you as you sit in the lively main square with the locals, the majority of whom are night owls and have done more than anything to contribute towards Kefalonia’s reputation for fun. Have a good hunt through the market, stroll down the handsome flagstone streets and sip Kefalonia’s famous Robola wine in the welcoming cafes and bars. As you explore, you’ll find monuments left over from the 19th century British Protectorate period on Kefalonia. And for an in-depth introduction to island culture from the 15th to 20th century, pay a visit to the outstanding Corgialenios Historical and Cultural Museum, one of the finest in Greece, and to the extensive Corgialenios Library. The principal settlement of Kefalonia will add a cultural flair to your holidays. The majority of places to eat in Kefalonia are found in seaside resorts, such as Skala, Lassi, Lourdas, Fiscardo, Sami, Agia Efimia and others. Many nice restaurants are also found at the port towns of Argostoli and Lixouri. This is where visitors can find local dishes, including the famous Kefalonian meat pie."
