Car Rental Cephallonia
Cephallonia is the largest of the Ionian islands in western Greece. The island is named after the mythological figure Cephalus, although some hold its name literally means "island with a head", referring to the island's shape. The name "Ciphalis" is derived from the Greek word for "head".
The airport of the island is the Cephalonia International Airport (EFL).
The island of Cephallonia is very mountainous and the highest mountain, Mount Ainos, is the only mountain in the whole Mediterranean ensemble to possess a unique fir forest species called Abies Kefallia. Many fruitful plains, lakes and rivers, caves, thick and verdant forests and wonderful beaches with golden sand and crystalline waters are embellishing the island.

Car Rental Cephallonia with Economy Car Rentals
There are a number of interesting towns on the island worth visiting, with your rental car. Fiskardo, once a small fishing village on the northern tip of the island, is now a colorful marina town with daily ferry connections to Ithaca and Lefkada. The marina in Fiskardo is always packed with yachts and sailboats. You can rent small speedboats here! Assos, a quaint little village 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) south of Fiskardo, on the western side of the island, is truly a gem. Its stunning location adds to its ambience. It straddles a narrow isthmus connecting the island to a small chunk of land jutting out into the sea with a large Venetian fort perched on top of it. If you are looking for a quiet village close to one of the best beaches on the islands, Assos is the place for you.
Cephallonia's largest town, Argostoli, is on the western side, opposite Sami. Argostoli was almost completely destroyed in an earthquake in 1953. As a result, the entire city had to be rebuilt. Upscale restaurants and cafes surround the large square in the center. During the summer, free concerts performed live are held here. The strip along the waterfront is not all that attractive but has several cheap and good tavernas. Running parallel to the waterfront is a pedestrian-only shopping street that becomes crowded with the pre-dinner crowd. Make the most of your trip to the island with a cheap car rental from Economy Car Rentals.
Enjoy your Car Rental Cephallonia
There are many places that you can visit with your car rental like the Melissani Cave that is in fact an underground lake full of stalactites. At one point the roof has collapsed in creating a large opening where the sun shines in and allows the water to turn green and blue. Do not miss the Ainos National Park. It is a preservation of the Kefallonian fir forest at the peak of Megalos Soros. Finally visit the Monastery of Agios Gerasimos. This monastery is a major center for pilgrims from all over Greece. Today nuns occupy the monastery and the faithful can visit to worship his relics daily. Arrange a car rental with Economy Car Rentals and enjoy your stay in the beautiful island of Cephallonia.
