On arrival at Kefalonia airport, Avis staff will be available to arrange your hire car. Then your exciting holiday on this magical Greek island can begin, with your next destination just a comfortable drive away.
Plan your journey from Kefalonia Airport
Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia, is only a short drive away from the airport. Within 15 minutes, you’ll be able to admire the Venetian style waterfront complete with an attractive promenade lined with palm trees. From here, it’s possible to take a car ferry over to the charming beach town of Lixouri, but there is plenty to be enjoyed in Argostoli itself.
Get a taste of local life at the bustling fish market and tuck into a traditional meal at one of the tavernas in the main square. The local restaurants source their catches of the day from this market every morning, so delicious fresh seafood is always available.
Lithostroto, Argostoli’s pedestrianised main shopping street, is the place to go for indulging in retail therapy. To learn more about the island’s history, a visit to the city’s Archaeological Museum is a must.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the resident loggerhead sea turtles that can sometimes be spotted in the bay near the harbour.
With an Avis rental car, you can explore this Greek Island and beyond at your own leisurely pace.
With the convenience of an Avis rental car, many beautiful beaches and intriguing historic landmarks outside of the capital city await you. The only question is, where to next?
The resort of Lassi is a mere 5-minute drive away from Argostoli city centre. The largest resort in Kefalonia, Lassi is home to some of the most stunning beaches on the island. Makris Gialos is particularly popular due to its clean, chalky white sand, crystal clear water and local amenities, including a number of beach bars and tavernas. Despite its popularity, Lassi has managed to maintain a relaxed, low key atmosphere that’s ideal for family holidays.
Kastro Agios Georgios
Located in the dramatic hills between Argostoli and Lassi this Venetian Castle of St George is open for tours throughout the summer months, where visitors can admire features such as 17th century frescoes.
The remains of ancient houses and a church are also in the vicinity, along with a cafe to enjoy lunch. Panoramic views of Kefalonia can be appreciated from this vantage point and the neighbouring Greek island of Zante can often be spotted from here as well.
