Sami Guide

The Greek town of Sami is located on the north east coast of the island of Cephalonia. It is a busy working port that is located around 20 km from Argostoli, the island's capital. The picturesque town lies on a wide bay with a long tree lined waterfront and has lovely views across to the neighbouring island of Ithaca. There are a number of bars, restaurants and tavernas located along the waterfront promenade where the day's fishing catch can often be seen on display. The town's nearest beach, Antisamos beach, is a short walk from the town and has a long stretch of white pebbles and is great for swimming in. There is also Karavomilos beach which is 2 km from the town and the resort of Aghia Efimia whish is 8 km from Sami.

The island has two ferry ports along with a cruise boat jetty. Greek ferries have improved greatly over the years and now a ferry journey over to the mainland, for a day's shopping in Patras is a real treat.

Patras Guide

The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of the Greek capital, Athens, and is the regional capital of Western Greece in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should head to Aghiou Nikolaou which is the city's most famous street and is only a short distance to the Old City. This is characterised by cobbled streets lined with lovely neoclassical mansions which act as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. A popular site in the city is its medieval castle that was constructed in the latter part of the 6th century AD on the site of the ancient Acropolis. The castle's walls enclose an area of around 22 sq. m and the castle consists of a triangular external compound that was reinforced with towers and ramparts.

There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where the Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
