Lixouri is on the peninsular opposite Argostoli and Lassi. With over 4000 Inhabitants it is the second largest town on the Island. Completely detroyed by the Earthquale in 1953 it like it's neighbour Argostoli had to be rebuilt. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to provide all you might need.

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.
