Argostolion — 6 nights

A modern town with a traditional character, Argostolion draws visitors with museums, gardens, squares, pedestrianized shopping streets, and a cobbled seaside promenade.
Get some historical perspective at Monastery of Agios Andreas and Saint Spiridon Church. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Drapano Bridge (De Bosset) and Platis Gialos Beach. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Makris Gialos Beach, stop by IN gallery, stroll through Eglina Beach, and relax and rejuvenate at Alexandra Kefalonia Massage.

Famous for its pristine natural scenery, Cephalonia boasts a string of clean and friendly towns packed with traditional taverns, trendy coffeehouses, and family-run inns. A place of rugged cliffs and lush forests, the island features a coastline of golden beaches, lapped by the azure waters of the Ionian Sea. Home to less than 40,000 permanent residents, Cephalonia clings to its relaxed way of life, seemingly unfazed by mass tourism. A devastating earthquake destroyed much of the island's old architecture in 1953, leveling all but two of its major towns. Today, in addition to modern port towns and quaint villages, you can also explore a tranquil countryside rich in lush vineyards and remote monasteries.
