paved with colourful pebbles from the sea. The road ends at the small ferry quay where boats depart for the town of Lixouri every half an hour and where little fishing boats are moored. The central square of the town called Plateia Valianou is a large and pleasant square surrounded by many restaurants, cafes and bars. During the summer evenings, the square gets crowded because it is the place where the locals go for their traditional evening walk.

Thessaloniki, Greece

It is the capital and largest town of the Cephalonia island. Built around its harbor, it’s one of the most picturesque corners in the island and a very popular destination during summertime.

Thessaloniki, Greece

Capital of the island, Argostoli undoubtedly has its own beauty. It is amphitheatrically built with many old Venetian houses that are still preserved. You can ride in the straits and find various options for coffee, food and drink. For cocktail a good choice is Bee's Knees the bar with very good service and well-made drinks, while for wine lovers the Oinops Wine Bar has many wine options and delicious food.
