Driving
Lefkada along with Evia are the only islands in Greece that you can visit by car.
A floating bridge connects Lefkada with the mainland (Acarnania).
The reduction of the distance and therefore the travel time, has decreased significantly because of three major projects in the region.
The underwater tunnel of Preveza-Aktion in conjunction with the Egnatia highway, make access easier and safer in the Ionian Sea from NW Greece.
The Rio-Antirio bridge greatly facilitate access to the island from mainland Greece.
