You won't require a car if you are only here for the day. To get around, you can take a taxi or a local bus from the port.

Kefalonia

The jewel of the Ionian Sea!

Holidays in the Ionian Sea offer a diverse range of experiences. Beautiful towns, award-winning beaches, a vibrant nightlife, unique wildlife, and culinary gems. From the port of Kyllini, travel to Kefalonia and see for yourself the beauty Ionian islands. Use Let's Ferry to quickly and simply complete your reservation. The Melissani Cave is among the first attractions you can see when you arrive at the port of Sami. This unusual geological occurrence is frequently included in lists of the world's top natural attractions. Had severe weather not destroyed the cave's roof, which is also a part of the hill, no one would have known about it. This unusually beautiful cave was found in 1951 and has 40 meters of crystal clear waters. Vacations by the Ionian Sea raise the bar for travel, and each time you visit the Ionian Islands, you'll discover more reasons to come back.

Alonissos

Stroll through the narrow streets of Alonissos!

Make the most of the days that are left and explore the fascinating Sporades. If you take the ferry from the port of Volos to Alonissos, you might be fortunate enough to spot the well-known seals that visit the island on their yearly migration. While dining on seafood specialties and taking in the view of the sea, dip into the azure waters. Take a tour of Chora and learn about the ancient settlement. Admire the typical island architecture, which consists of stone houses with vibrant orange windows, as you stroll around.

Hydra

The Lady of the Saronic Gulf!

Hydra, a cosmopolitan city with a rich history, is a great place to spend a few hours away from Athens. Don't hesitate to plan your trip to the Saronic Gulf and get started as soon as possible. People travel around the island on foot, bicycles, or water taxis as there are no cars. Visit the Andreas Miaoulis statue first thing in the morning to take in the expansive view of the Saronic Gulf. Make sure to visit the upper floor of the Lazaros Kountouriotis Mansion, which houses an annex of the National Historical Museum, when you stop by. Visit the Historical Archives Museum of Hydra to see historical displays, paintings, and artifacts. You simply must take some souvenirs from the island, especially the well-known local almond sweets.
