Argostoli is a top-notch destination if you like cities and you would like to combine the hustle and bustle of city life, vivid nightlife and shopping with the Greek sun, ice-cold coffees in lovely cafes and enchanting beaches.Kefalonia airport is only 8 km away from and 10 minutes approximately by taxi. It is the biggest city of the island and it has been its capital since 1757, the year it was actually founded. It is built amphitheatrically and even though the earthquake in 1953 destroyed the entire city, there are still parts that resemble the architecture of the old city with the typical Venetian mansions.
A stone bridge of 650 metres long called the Drapano Bridge stands at the entrance of the capital. At the center is a small pyramid dedicated from Charles de Bosset, who built the bridge, to the British Empire.
There is no chance of getting bored in Argostoli as the city is lively year round, with a lot of shops, cafes and bars mostly found in Lithostroto, the pedestrian street near the main square.There one can admire the beautiful church of Saint Spyridon and the interesting clock tower of Campana Square. Around its outskirts are a range of restaurants that cover all tastes and budgets. Right above the square is one of the town’s nicest sights, the lush Botanical Garden.
If you head to Lithostroto for a drink in the evening, you might get lucky enough to come across the local band playing traditional Kefalonian songs and filling the atmosphere with rhythmic and soft sounds.
