Sami, Greece Cruise Port

The town of Sami is located on the island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Islands. A municipality prior to 2011, Sami, despite being a small fishing village, has a population over 2,400, which is quite large for the region. It’s one of the largest shopping and tourist areas in the region, offering many shops, cafes, and city shopping centers all brimming with commerce. Sami, Greece also contains a series of expansive beaches looking out onto the beautiful, aquamarine waters. There are caves to explore, formed over thousands of years through continuous erosion. For those interested in history, the island contains the ruins of an ancient castle as well as the Monastery of Mother of God of Agrilia. Film buffs will be particularly interested in Sami Harbor and nearby Kefalonia Island because a number of scenes from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin were filmed at various locations there back in the year 2000.

 

  • Take in stunning views at Melissani Caves. For a modest entrance fee, a guide will take you down into the caves and even bring you around to each one in a small boat.
     
  • The Monastery of Agrilia was first built in 1722 after two shepherds and their maid claimed to find a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary. Today, it remains a male monastery that celebrates Mary’s Assumption.
     
  • Explore a different side of the island on horseback by going on an in-depth and exciting excursion offered by the local stables.
     
  • Perhaps you’d like to explore cloistered beaches and coves only accessible by small boat. After leaving your large cruise ship at port, there are plenty of modest-sized boats to rent, perfect for a day of discovery.
