Sami is the 3rd largest town located 24 km east of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. The village reaches a population of 1000 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in agriculture and tourism. Sami is the second largest port of Kefalonia after Poros and during summer season is connected with Ithaca and Italy. The modern village is built close to ancient Sami, and Agioi Fanentes, one of the most important archeological discoveries of Kefalonia. The main coastal road consists of modern amenities, shops and peaceful cafes overlooking the busy port. A number of restaurants are found nearby as well as pretty accommodation for all tastes and budgets. Sami is surrounded by a dream landscape of verdurous imposing hills and stunning coves. Near the village there are some interesting monasteries and sights in Kefalonia like the monastery of Agrilia and Antisamos beach, which was made famous when the Captain Corelli’s Mandolin movie was filmed there.
