Sami Kefalonia: Sami is a beautiful coastal town located 25.8 km east of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. The village reaches a population of 1000 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in agriculture and fishing. Sami is the second largest port of Kefalonia after Argostoli and it serves daily trips to Patra, Ithaca and Italy. The modern village is built close to ancient Sami, one of the most important archeological discoveries of Kefalonia.
Sami is a perfect destination for your summer holidays in Greece. The delightful waterfront, the wide paved streets and the Venetian buildings offer the village a unique charm and reflect the rich heritage of the island. The main coastal road consists of modern amenities, shops and lovely cafes overlooking the busy port. A number of restaurants are found nearby as well as pretty accommodation for all tastes and budgets.
