A modern town with a traditional character, Argostolion draws visitors with museums, gardens, squares, pedestrianized shopping streets, and a cobbled seaside promenade. Badly damaged during World War II and nearly flattened by a devastating earthquake in 1953, the indomitable city managed to close out the 20th century as one of Greece's busiest ports, its economy heavily reliant on a booming tourism sector. The harbor, located on Argostolion's eastern side, serves dozens of daily cruise ships carrying curious sightseers from all over the world. Soak up Cephalonia's local culture by exploring Argostolion's traditional taverns and outdoor markers, or mingle with other pleasure seekers on one of the town's sun-drenched Ionian beaches. Add Argostolion and other destinations in Greece to your travel plans using our Greece day trip website.

To fully experience Argostolion's colorful streets, stay near the town square or along its beaches. A number of hotels and rentals are clustered on or just off the square in the heart of this port town.
