Please help..... last 4 days on the Ionian Coastline

Hi everyone,

Its our first time to Greece! We are 2 couples travelling to Greece in June. We have booked our first 8 days in Kefalonia and the next 8 days in Lefkada. We have 4 days left and I am so undecided as to what to do and would really appreciate anyone's advice.

My first idea was to hire a car from Preveza Airport and to travel up the coast towards Parga. From what I can gather, this trip takes approx 2.5 hours by car. Perhaps stay overnight in or near Parga and then the following afternoon catch a ferry to Paxos to spend two nights there. Then catch a ferry back to Parga and travel back down the coast for a one night stay in Preveza before boarding the plane to return to Athens for our onward trip back home.

My second idea was to perhaps find a "fast" boat taxi in Lefkada (if this exists) and head straight for Paxos..... spend 3 nights in Paxos and then return via "fast boat taxi" to Lefkada....and then take a taxi to Preveza for a one night stay before heading off home the next day.

Please let me know what you all think of these ideas. I'm also open to other suggestions as well as I am feeling pretty clueless at the moment. I have always wanted to see Paxos but if it means too much hassle to get there then I would rather do something else.

I look forward to any suggestions. Many thanks!!!

Stay 4 nights in Parga and have a rest. Do hire a car on Kefalonia and Lefkada.

Thank you ..... yes, I'm thinking maybe we're travelling around too much. I'll check out some accommodation options in Parga. I hope I haven't left it too late for a nice hotel or villa! From what I can gather, Parga is quite a busy little town.....

Thank you Travelbob31.... I appreciate the info. The ferry unfortunately is not going to help us as it doesn't sail on the days we require.

Kind regards...

I would suggest stay in Parga its too much to attempt Paxos Its only about 75 mins drive from Preveza to Parga. As you will have a car in Parga you can visit the necromanteio or ammousi or the reported source of the river styx, more than enough to do. As others have said hire a car on Kefalonia and Lefkada.
