Sami is a beautiful coastal town 24km east of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia, one of the Ionian Islands in western Greece. Kefalonia, whose mountains, pine forests and sandy beaches characterize the landscape of the island, is considered one of the most beautiful Greek islands. Modern historians assume that Kefalonia is the actual location of Odysseus' home of Ithica and not the smaller island that bears this name today. The island of Kefalonia has numerous family-friendly beaches, which, despite their popularity, are usually not overcrowded. Although many of the settlements of Kefalonia were destroyed by an earthquake in 1953, there are still a number of attractions on the island today, including the mosaic floors of the Roman villa in Skala, the Venetian castle of Assos, caves, ruins, old vineyards and lush mountain landscapes that are a magnet for the active traveller.
Italy boasts a wealth of popular destinations and has something for everyone to enjoy.
Take a romantic gondola ride in Venice, see the ancient Colosseum in Rome, visit the leaning tower of Pisa, admire the many masterpieces in the Uffizi gallery of Florence or simply relax on one of the many beautiful beaches that can be found along Italy's miles of stunning coastline.
Florence is an often overlooked tourist destination. However, it is well worth a visit.The town was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and it still shows in the architecture of the city. There are many fine art galleries from famous artists - including the Galleria degli Uffizi, where you can see Boticelli's `Birth of Venus'.
The galleries themselves are often works of art, with the walls and ceiling ornately decorated with various brightly coloured murals.
