It is the place where I spent my summer holidays since my childhood.
The modern town was rebuilt after the earthquakes of 1953 at the foot of the hills of Agioi Fanentes and Kastro with the help of the British.
Behind the town rise the two hills on which the old city was situated.On of them took its name from the three Saints they were burried here ) Agioi Fenentes.
Lord Byron stayed one night in the hostel close to the church.
Sami is directly connected to the port of Patras with everyday trips. For more information on the timetable check my transportation section.
Karavomylos - Melissani
This area is the termination point of one of Cephalonia's most significant geological phenomenon.
The sea water that constantly falls and disappears into the sinkholes (Katavothres) near Argostoli, after a subterranean journey through the island appears again in Melissani Lake in semi-salted form. Following a new subterranean route, it ends up in Karavomylos Lake, gets into the large water wheel and, finally, into the sea once again.
The journey from Katavothres to Sami Bay takes 14 days.
