We walked to the lighthouse from Argostoli which was a reasonable walk. The lighthouse stands well, but close up it is full of graffiti which was disappointing. Great view though. We visited a restaurant just before the lighthouse which was nice and it has a...More

I'd recommend a short diversion to this attraction. It's quite noticeable and there are also good views across the bay from the walk to it, although sadly it is now quite heavily graffiti'd.

The Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi is an unusual building overlooking the Bay. There is not much else to see here but the views are great, especially at sunset. We found the place to be tranquil. Unfortunately, the lighthouse is covered in graffiti and looks uncared...More

We took the Fanari Coastal Road walking from Lassi to Argostoli and back. It is a delightful walk on a very quiet road passing through scented pines & catching glimpses of secluded bays. We passed the Italian war memorial & the lighthouse & waterwheel before...More

Not much there really and it gets windy in the evening however it's worth a little trip to watch the sun go down. Take a bottle of wine!

The lighthouse is better viewed from a distance or from the hill above, especially first thing in a morning or when the sun is setting, because of the light. You are able to walk out to the lighthouse and some people drive, although this could...More

Beautiful, not the usual style of lighthouse. Worth seeing and a great opportunity to get some interesting photos.

At the end of the peninsula and nothing hardly there when you get there. A very short building so hardly a lighthouse overlooking the bay to Lixouri but in all honesty not worth the trip
