  ARGOSTOLI
  KEFALONIA, GREECE

The town of Argostoli was virtually destroyed in the 1953 earthquake, very few original buildings and features remain. Sadly it was not rebuilt in the original "venetian" style.

The fruit and vegetable market in Argostoli, Kefalonia

The attractive waterfront has a colourful fruit market for farmers to sell their fresh produce. Much of the daily fish catch on Kefalonia is sold in the fish market next to the waterfront. Here Taverna owners and locals await the early morning catch.

The smaller fishing caiques sell directly from boxes on the quayside. The price per kilo is not cheap, but worth every cent..... Time for a Bar-b-q! Whilst we are on the subject of Barbies, I have an excellent Greek recipe for a simple bar-b-q'd fish, please
email us for details. Err.......WARNING........ You must like lemon and garlic!!

Small boat in the water in Argostoli


Palm trees and seats line the attractive promenade, which has a tourist office at the northern end near the departure point for the hourly car ferry to Lixouri. The main street Lithostroto is pedestrianised and has lots of shops, bars and cafes. Argostoli has an attractive main square the Platia Vallianou, with plenty of bars and tavernas in which to sit and chill whilst watching the world go by. This area is also where the nightlife happens, so it's the place to visit in the evening if you want to boogie the night away.
 

 

The lithostroto, the shopping area, in Argostoli

 


The main bus depot for the island is situated in Argostoli near to the Drapano causeway, from here you can catch the bus to Sami, Skala and Katelios and Fiskardo, fares are reasonable but buses do get busy and are spasmodic! Timetables vary so no point publishing one here. Check the departure times for your return journey carefully as taxi rides on the island tend to be expensive.
