Argostoli (Kefallinia) Shore Excursions

De Bosset Bridge

De Bosset Bridge

De Bosset bridge is a half mile long pedestrianized stone causeway linking Argostoli to the village of Drapano. Crossing the bridge is an enjoyable stroll, with gorgeous views back across the bay and the town. Half way along there’s a commemorative obelisk, dating back to the days when the British controlled the island.


Katavothres

Katavothres

At Katavothres the sea flows inland and disappears into sinkholes in the ground. In 1963 Austrian geologists added dye to the water and found that it flowed right under the island to Melissani lake, near the opposite coast. After inspecting the impressive phenomenon, you can walk around Fenari beach towards picturesque St Theodore lighthouse. Katavothres is located at the north of the Argostoli peninsula, about a 3km north of the town.
