Lixouri is reached by road around the bay in approx 45mins, or principally by Ferry every half hour in summer season and every hour in low season. The Ferry is a basic car ferry with a small cafe aboard and open deck seating. For only €1 you can cross one way as a foot passenger, in what has to be a very pleasant trip for the money, and shrt enought to keep children entertained.
There is a Square in Lixouri and it is surrounded on three sides by Cafes, bars and small tavernas. It is a short stroll from the promenade where the ferry arrives and you can sit with a coffee awaiting your return crossing in comfort.
At Easter the carnival in Lixouri is seconded only to that of the carnival in Patra on the mainland. It is a time of feasting partying fancy costumes and much celebrations. There is also a firework display, music and dancing.
A couple of librarys in Lixouri and one library is worth a visit for it is housed in a restored town house complete with classical decorations from the 1800s.
