Driving in Cephalonia

Does anyone know how long it takes (approximately) to drive from the south of the island to the north?

Thanks

Are you driving from Skala area? If you are you'd be looking at around 1 and a half to 2 hours, more likely the latter if you have a short drink stop at somewhere like Aghia Efimia or Assos en-route.

Hi there

if you are staying in or near to Skala, then you can choose between the east and west routes to the far north. The east coast is exceptionally mountainous therefore the road rarely gets that close to the actual coast other than the first section between Skala and Poros, after which it swings inland to Sami, then follows the coast again to Agia Efimia.

The west coast road is arguably the more scenic and certainly has more scope for "seeing the sea" but of course, you could head for the far north on one road, and return on the other.

That's what we usually do GB, as it makes for a very intersting day's driving.

We're going to be driving from Lourdas on the south west coast.

Thanks for all your helpful replies!

Hi Sophie

Well, you can still do both routes on the one trip, just go in a large circle from Lourdas, north via the west coast road to Fiskardo, then south from Fiskardo via Vasilikiades, then Agia Efimia, Sami, then either take the cross-island route from Sami to Argostoli or continue south to Poros, Skala then back to Lourdas.
