Sami Guide

The Greek town of Sami is located on the north east coast of the island of Cephalonia. It is a busy working port that is located around 20 km from Argostoli, the island's capital. The picturesque town lies on a wide bay with a long tree lined waterfront and has lovely views across to the neighbouring island of Ithaca. There are a number of bars, restaurants and tavernas located along the waterfront promenade where the day's fishing catch can often be seen on display. The town's nearest beach, Antisamos beach, is a short walk from the town and has a long stretch of white pebbles and is great for swimming in. There is also Karavomilos beach which is 2 km from the town and the resort of Aghia Efimia whish is 8 km from Sami.

The island has two ferry ports along with a cruise boat jetty. Greek ferries have improved greatly over the years and now a ferry journey over to the mainland, for a day's shopping in Patras is a real treat.

Paxi Guide

Paxi is an island of Greece, in the Ionian Sea. In Greek mythology Poseidon created the island by striking Corfu with his trident, so that he and wife Amphitrite could have some peace and quiet.
Although possibly inhabited from prehistoric times, the Phoenecians are traditionally held to have been the first settlers on Paxi. The name is believed to be derived from Pax which meant slate in their language.
The Romans ruled the island from the 2nd century BC, and during the Byzantine period and Middle ages it was constantly attacked by pirates. After various rulers and Crusaders had passed through, the island was taken by the Venetians at the end of the 14th century.
During the Napoleonic wars the Ionian Islands were taken by the French, a Russo-Turkish alliance, and finally by the British, who established the Ionian Union in 1815. In 1864, together with the rest of the Heptanese, Paxi was ceded to the Greek state.
