The ruins of ancient Sami (at it's peak between 800 and 500BC) is worth a visit even if it is just for the views. On a clear day you can see across Ithaca to Lefkas and to the mainland. Walk up to the ancient gate and marvel at the symmetry of the stones cut with only basic tools

A little tricky to get to (like a lot of places on the island) but don't let that put you off.... great views from here and unbelievable tranquility...

A no cost trip with superb views, interesting remains dating back over 2000 years, if you go expecting intact buildings and in depth guide / tour you will be disappointed, if you have an imagination and want to wander around an interesting site (Very quiet when we visited) then you may well find it rewarding as we did.

I stumbled on these ruins with my girlfriend in the spring. They were truely magical. Large carved pieces of masonry laying amidst carpets of white flowers and ancient olive trees strung over 3 rocky outcrops.

Against the concrete architecture of a reconstructed island with its blatant and all pervasive commercial theme it felt like a honest glimpse of the cephalonia of old and a glimps of the past.

An impressive gateway leads onto the site. Even has the places for hinges and door frames. We walked around the whole site and found many pieces of roof tiles and pot. What a view down to Sami and along the coast. Well worth a visit and avoid going in the midday sun!
