How to get there? A Map
Kefalonia, Akrata and Athens just happen to fall on a straight line on a map, making it easy to visit, even within a couple of weeks. These locations are especially practical if you are travelling with your own car and come with the ferry from Italy to the port of Patras, Greece’s main gateway to Italy.
These three locations are fairly close to each other and thus make the trip between them short and practical. And they are great as springboards to explore Greece's past, its mythology and classical history not to mention the beaches, the natural beauty and so on.
Possible 2-week Greek holiday itinerary, if you come with you own car
Possible 2-week Greek holiday itinerary, if you prefer to fly to Greece
If you travel with your vehicle on an international ferry from Western Europe you may disembark at Patras. From Patras, Akrata can be reached in less than an hour. There you may stay at Mondo Cosseri Akrata. Using Akrata as a base you may explore several sightseeing places in the Peloponnese as well as Delphi. Then you may drive back to Patras or Kyllini to board the ferry to Kefalonia (check for the latest schedules). At Kefalonia you may stay at Mondo Cosseri Kefalonia Villa Rossa. You may enjoy the beach and relax. You may also explore this large island with your car. You may take your car to Zante or Leukada via ferry for short excursions. Then you may drive to Athens and stay at one of the Mondo Cosseri Apartments In Center Of Athens with own off-street parking. You may explore Athens via the public transportation which is nearby. Eventually, you may head back home via Patras.
I would recommend to fly to Athens international airport, as usually the flights to Athens are cheaper than the international flights to local destinations in Greece. At the airport you may rent a car. You may drive to Akrata and stay at Mondo Cosseri Akrata for a few days to enjoy the beach and explore the Peloponnese. Then you may drive to Kefalonia and may stay at Mondo Cosseri Kefalonia Villa Rossa. You may enjoy the beach and relax and explore this large island with your car.
At the end of your trip you may drive back to Athens. In Athens you may enjoy sightseeing at your leisure before boarding the flight on your way back home.
If you do not need the rental car in Athens, you may drop it off at the airport and then come back at one of the Mondo Cosseri Apartments In Center Of Athens just by using the metro.
