Argostoli Holidays

A compact, laid-back capital

Kefalonia’s cosmopolitan capital is a wonderfully relaxed small city, and Argostoli holidays can involve doing as much or as little as you like. You can choose to simply sit in the main square, sipping Greek coffee and watching daily life pass by, listening to the musicians who stroll the streets singing traditional ‘kantades’. Or, if you prefer to be busy, there are museums packed with ancient artefacts and Lithostroto, the city’s main shopping street, is bustling with boutiques and cafés.

Several unmissable beaches can be found nearby, and for foodie travellers, holidays to Argostoli offer the chance to sample delicacies at the city’s many great restaurants. You can watch fishermen display the day’s catch at the market, then try it for lunch or dinner in a low-key café or a traditional taverna right on the waterfront. With the sun setting, it’s a very special place to enjoy your holiday.
