Port of Sami

Land Transport and Travel To and From Port Sami
(Sami, Kefalonia, Greece)

Because of the convenient location of the ferry terminal, it is possible to disembark from your ferry and walk the short distance into town although taxis are available to take you to your hotel.

Some hotels in the town offer a pick up service from the ferry terminal. Passengers wishing to take advantage of this service should contact their hotel in advance.

Travel by Bus and Shuttles

Kefalonia has a limited public bus service that links most of the main towns on the island; however, services travelling to many areas can be very infrequent so it is advisable to check in advance before making your plans.

Car Hire and Road Travel

Navigating the island's roads should be very straightforward as most roads have signs in English as well as Greek; however, some of Kefalonia's roads are a little rough so you need to look out for potholes as well as other potential hazards such as sheep, goats, dogs and donkeys that all regularly appear at the roadside, often with little warning.

As the island's transport system is rather limited, the majority of visitors who want to explore the island opt for a hire car. There are several hire car companies represented in Sami but visitors should be aware that choice and availability can be a problem during the peak months. The best way of securing the car of choice at a competitive price is to book online through an independent website.

Car Parking

Car parking at the port itself is rather limited, particularly in the busy summer months. There is both short-term and long-term parking available in the town.

Travel by Taxis

Visitors arriving by ferry will normally find plenty of taxis waiting to meet the incoming boats at the port entrance. Alternatively, you can call one of the taxi companies who display their phone numbers at the ferry terminal.
