Argostoli, Kephalonia Luxury Cruises

The beautiful Kephalonian capital of Argostoli offers visitors a picturesque marina, soft sandy beaches and light, clear waters. There's a distinct cosmopolitan charm to this fishing town, where the brilliant white limestone of the buildings, monuments and surrounding cliffs reflects the bright sunlight in the clear blue skies above.

Sightseeing in Argostoli

The natural beauty of Argostoli may well leave you feeling spoiled for choice when it comes to sightseeing around this magnificent port – whether you're seeking out the monumental ancient caves, or seeing the sights further afield around the entire island of Kephalonia.

Myrtos beach

You won't believe your eyes when you visit the picture-perfect cove of Myrtos beach, looking for all the world like an idyllic painting. Be sure to spend some time relaxing in the natural beauty of this remarkable beach – whether you're overlooking the bay from the scrub-covered headlands high above, or warming your feet in the white sand as the glassy waves roll and break upon the shore.

Drogarati and Melissani caves

Take a trip underground to see the eerie formations of the Drogarati caves, where the jagged beauty of the stalactites and stalagmites shine with a golden hue under the floodlights. Afterwards, be sure to see the spectacular Melissani sea cave – the polar opposite of Drogarati, where sunlight pours in down the towering walls of natural rock to create a bright, open space as you sail around the turquoise seawater pool at its floor.

Tour of Kephalonia

You may be able to tour the rest of this magnificent island with a road trip around the north, where you'll be treated to a visit to the picturesque fishing village of Assos, which sits on its own small beach. Later you'll see the bright buildings of Fiscardo, home to a beautiful marina and picture-perfect houses, some painted in candy pink or lemon yellow and surrounded by the deep, bright blue of the sea.

Shopping in Argostoli

Keen shoppers will find a great choice of places to browse and buy in Argostoli. The town boasts a number of good bakeries, selling homemade biscuits and spinach and feta pies; or tempting visitors inside with shelves full of countless varieties of bread, baked in traditional wood-fired ovens. Argostoli is also home to some renowned jewellers – whether you're looking for premium jewellery made in the traditional style, complete with olive branch designs; or if you'd prefer to buy jewellery designed and handmade by the shop owner – or watch them make your jewellery to your own design.

Eating Out in Argostoli

Whether you're looking for luxury restaurant dining or a traditional Greek tavern, there's a rich choice of places to eat around Argostoli. Many restaurants and cafes accompany their delicious local fare with excellent wines native to the area, whether you're dining on fresh feta cheese and one of the island's trademark seafood and vegetable pies, or indulging your sweet tooth with pasteli (caramelised sesame and honey bars) or delicious galaktompoureko, a creamy custard pie topped with flaky phyllo pastry.
