Sami is one of the three larger cities on Kefalonia. It lies roughly in the middle of the east coast of the island. There are three major Kefalonian attractions in its vicinity: Melissani Cave, Drogarati and the beautiful Antisamos Beach. In addition, there are also a few smaller attractions worth visiting. The whole area is ideal not a day trip.


In the very center of the area – Sami, there is not much to see. There is a church and a port from where you can take a trip to the neighboring island of Ithaca. To the west of the city is Karavomilos beach. Through the city, but you will definitely have to drive if you want to visit the beautiful beach of Antisamos

Another reason to go to the Sami area are the two famous local caves: Melissani and Drogarati. Each is completely different, so it's worth visiting both. Melissani is to the northwest of the city and Drogarati to the southwest.
