To the east, it lies the bay next to the port of Sami. Antissamos is a big pebble beach with green waves that resemble the scenery around the bay, which includes green hills and mountains filled with oaks and cypresses. The azure water meets the equally green southern portion of Ithaca on the opposite side - the two islands are so close that it's difficult to tell them apart! Antissamos was the site for some of the most crucial and impressive moments in the Hollywood film "Captain Corelli's Mandolin," which has been shot in Kefalonia in the summer of 2000 and shown the following year in cinemas all over the world. The entire area of Sami was subsequently transformed into a massive set for transporting the actors to Kefalonia in 1943, the scene for the film. Captain Corelli's camp was placed on Antissamos, with the explosion scene providing one of the most dramatic effects.

The beach of Myrtos, or simply Myrtos, is located on the island of Kefalonia. It is recognized as the island's most famous beach and one of its key attractions, as it has attracted a large number of visitors in recent years. It's in the northern portion of the island, in the Pylareon Municipality, 18 miles north of Argostoli. Divarata, 1 mile south of the seashore, is the closest village. Due to the currents in the area, it boasts white pebbles and blue waters. The beach is about 0.62 miles long and is bordered by cliffs. A small cave can be seen on the cliff's edge. The beach has received the blue flag and has also been named the finest beach in Greece 11 times, more often than any other beach, in a poll conducted by thalassa.gr. Myrtos Beach is a well-kept beach with a canteen, umbrellas, sunbeds, and a lifeguard on duty. Because it is an open bay, the beach is perilous because large waves might develop during poor weather, and many swimmers have perished as a result. Every August, the Cultural Summer, a music event hosted by the municipality of Pylareon, takes place on the beach.

There is a city in Northern Greece, centered in Macedonia, that is unlike any other in Greece. When you see Thessaloniki listed among other tourist attractions throughout the world, it gives you the impression that it is a city of a thousand people. Its rich history, which spans 23 centuries, and the bustling city life urge visitors to embark on a one-of-a-kind voyage of remarkable experiences. The diversity of people and cultures that inhabited it resulted in a welcoming, pleasant, and humane metropolis. It has all of the qualities of a huge city, as well as a unique physiognomy. The Port Warehouses, which house the Museum of Photography, the Cinema Museum, and the Center for Contemporary Art, are located on the beach in a unique stroll with iconic buildings. The White Tower, Thessaloniki's iconic monument that rises above the beach, is home to a multimedia exhibition about the city's history. Your vacation in Thessaloniki begins with city walks beginning at the White Tower, followed by 3.6 kilometers of beachfront and eleven theme parks in Nea Paralia, with Olympus, the home of the gods, proudly standing at the bottom of the horizon. The Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Byzantine Culture, and the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art are among the city's most important museums, as are important cultural sites such as the Royal Theater and the Society for Macedonian Studies, both of which are permanent stages of the State Theater of Greece. You'll have a thousand memories and a few pounds when you leave Thessaloniki... High gastronomy and historical cuisine, cosmopolitan restaurants, sought-after ouzadika in the old markets, koutouki and all-day eateries provide a one-of-a-kind culinary experience in Northern Greece's capital. All civilizations are on your plate: city and Pontus, Balkans and Mediterranean, Macedonia and Thrace. The city of Thessaloniki's cuisine reflects the city's long history as a melting pot of ethnicities. Her food was influenced by the meze ritual, which was brought to the United States by refugees in the 1920s. They also took tripe, soup, and the famed bougatsa with them. The discovery of all of Thessaloniki's gastronomic points, which range from traditional taverns and cafes to modern cuisine restaurants, as well as the city's famous open-air and non-market markets, is the city's main source of entertainment due to its deep gastronomic tradition and oriental influences. Thessaloniki is a suitable destination for both couples and families. This is because it can combine on the one hand the nightlife that never stops, and on the other it is a city with rich history, many museums and many festivals throughout the year. It is such a magical city that young and old alike will love it. The weather in Thessaloniki is always pleasant. The average temperature for the whole year is 21 ℃. Thessaloniki is beautiful all year round. One of the best times to visit is Christmas, when the whole city is decorated and illuminated. Of course in the summer, the city becomes even more beautiful with the many festivals that take place but also by the open-air markets.
