Unlike the larger boats which run trips from Nydri, the M/S Christina takes just 55 passengers, and each passenger has a sunbed for relaxing. You are journeying in comfort and style!

This morning we drove to the Dimossari Waterfalls/Kαταρράκτες Δημοσάρη near Nydri/Νυδρί. If you look at the scenery around Lefkada, you’ll notice it is very green when compared to other Greek islands – some of which are very barren. The reason…

We left the Underground at Syntagma/Σύνταγμα and walked through the Kolonaki/Κολωνάκι district, going up Ploutarchou/Πλουτάρχου Street until we reached the cable car which goes up the mountain.
