GETTING AROUND LEFKADA ISLAND

Vasiliki town is very well serviced with daily local buses, which connect most towns along the coast as well as inland mountain villages. From the ports of Vasiliki and Nidri, there are local car ferries leaving daily for Meganisi, Kefalonia, and Ithaki islands, 20- 30mins ferry trip and no need to book tickets.

Motorcycle/moped rental is very cheap and car hire is available everywhere at daily rates €25-40. Taxis are common but expensive. Local roads around the island are generally safe- with not much traffic, although some mountain roads are steep and narrow. Up in the hills, older traditional folk still prefer to get around by donkey.
