Getting to know a new island
Nowadays island-hopping Greece is not just a reserved way of traveling for peripatetic or very active people. Young people and those who stayed young, singles, couples and families make use of the offers by traveling agencies for island-hopping. Because the Greek islands lie closely together it is possible to visit numerous islands without spending a lot of time on the ferries. Even today island-hopping is a completely normal way to travel for many backpack tourists from all around the world. On Kefalonia it is often advised to also visit the neighbouring islands Lefkada and Ithaka.
