Argostoli, Greece


Sunday, October 2, 2016

Our final adventure in Greece was in the town of Argostoli. 
Aqua love.
Souvenir shop.
Argostoli is the capital of Cephalonia with a population of just over 10,000 people.

Because of the sheltered bay it sits on, the town developed into one of the busiest ports in Greece. It has charming boutiques and cafes along the main walking street.
The town was heavily damaged during WWII by German bombing and virtually any buildings that were still standing were razed by a 1953 earthquake.

Thus, the entire town is new, but it still has an old world charm.

Lol.

We were walking around during the "siesta" time so nothing was open and it was very quiet. Like a ghost town!

Our last stop of the cruise was right where we started: Venice, Italy! We visited Venice our first Christmas here in Germany, so instead of touristing Venice again we headed to the colorful town of Burano! But I still took enough photos of Venice to warrant a separate blog post... so... that's what's up tomorrow!
