South of Agios Euphemia on Kefalonia is Sami. Sami used to be the capital town of the island of Kefalonia and is more commercial than other places, it is the second busiest port on Kefalonia serving ferries to Corfu, Ithaki (Ithaca), Patras and Italy. Sami has a long waterfront, lined with shaded restaurants and tavernas serving the locally caught fish of the day. A working town, Sami is also relatively cosmopolitan compared to other ports in the Greek Ionian with banks, shops, tavernas and bars as well as local lace shops.

Sami was also the site where the film 'Captain Corelli’s Mandolin' was filmed.
