The longest stone bridge of Europe !
Took many years to be restored. An argument with local people and politics where a minority wanted to be a shortcut road for the city...

Built in the early 19th century to facilitate crossing the Gulf from Argostoli (The Capital) . Lovely walk about 2km return. If lucky you will see the occasional turtle.

Went for a walk over the bridge when visiting Argostoli for the day. It is a lovely walk over to the cemetery at the other side,and also small bar ( yacht bar) where you can get a nice cool beer. Great to do on a nice sunny day.

Nice bridge as far as bridges go. Worth it if you fancy a stroll. It is only about a kilometre in length and offers nice views.

Every year on our visit to Kefalonia we walk from Lassi to Argostoli and always include a walk over the bridge. Chance to spot turtles and fantastic views back over to Argostoli.

A splendid walk on a sunny day. Took the time to research the history of the bridge before we strolled over to the village on the other side (Drapano) where there are 2 well-maintained cemeteries and a small cafe. A recommended visit when you are in Argostoli.

It’s nice walk over the bridge where you can see the different views from different angle, it’s possible to walk all the way with no problem. Also you have nice view of the bridge from one of many cafe on the side

We like walking over this bridge, great for turtle spotting and for pictures of Argostoli. You'll know if there are turtles about as everyone will be pointing and often sea birds nearby

A worthwhile walk on this historic bridge, dating back to the early 19th century, separates the lagoon from the bay. Not only will you get wonderful perspectives of the town and the mountains, but you may also be lucky enough to catch sight of loggerhead turtles swimming in the clear waters. Built over 200 years ago, it has been rebuilt and restored several times due to earthquake damage.

This wonderful zig-zaggy bridge joins Argostoli to Drapanos, a tiny hamlet the opposite side of the lagoon from the capital. Initially constructed out of wood by De Bosset, a Swiss engineer in 1813, shortly after the occupation of the island by the British, displacing the French. Until the last decade, motor vehicles crossed back and forth, narrowly avoiding colliding with each other, or unsuspecting pedestrians, but now the bridge is given over completely to walkers. I well remember the first time I attempted the crossing, having just picked up an hire car in September 2001, trying to adjust to driving on the right and trying to navigate the sharp, zig-zag bends with half of Argostoli driving up my back! Phew! Now mercifully closed to motor traffic, it offers a relatively pleasant walk in the early evening,as the sun goes down and the sea breezes drop, before sitting down to any of the excellent restaurants and taverns which line the waterfront or square.
