Ferries to Kefalonia

The Greek island of Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is located above the island of Zakynthos and west of the Peloponnese peninsula in western Greece.

Around a third of the islands’ population reside in its capital Argostoli. Another third can be found at Lixouri, the second major settlement, with the rest of the population spread amongst the other regions of Kefalonia.

Though Kefalonia is now a popular tourist destination attracting visitors from all over the world, it was relatively unknown to the international tourist until more recently. Something perhaps influenced by the Hollywood adaptation of Louis de Bernières' novel - Captain Corelli's Mandolin - which was set on the island.

Like most of the Greek islands, Kefalonia is well prepared for the influx of tourists during the holiday season and is relatively easy to get to by ferry too.

Ferry ports are situated on each side of the island, with Argostoli to the west, Poros to the south east and Sami towards the north east. Modern ferries travel to Kefalonia from Italy, the Greek mainland and other Greek islands with services increasing with demand during the high season

  • "Bari - Durres ferry"

    The ferry itself was fine. But the signposting for foot passengers at the Bari end was appalling. The address given turned out to be that of the Bari Port Authority. This building was closed with no indication of the route to the ferry. After walking a considerable distance we were told that the Ventouris check-in was 3km away. A promised shuttle bus was invisible. We fortunately found a taxi to take us to the check-in and back to the departure point, but had a time of real anxiety about missing the boat. We then
