Visit the most of the highlights of Kefalonia in one day.
On your tour you will visit:
Myrtos Bay – photo stop (is breathtakingly beautiful beach has been ranked as the best beach in Greece and among the ten best beaches in the world. Myrtos is best viewed from the road where the full effect of turquoise water lapping the white pebbles.
It is example of the amazing alternation of colours and the commanding presence of the mountain massifs leave the visitor riveted.)
Drogaratti Cave (is one of the most spectacular caves of Greece. The name of the cave refers to a myth, according to which a dragon lived in the cave. The cave is 40km deep from the surface of the earth and is 150 million years old. This huge cavern is full of stalactites and stalagmites in different colours and its wonderful acoustics made it a natural setting for music performances by artists such as Maria Callas. The impressions are unique.) (entrance fees not include).
Melissani Lake (near the village of Karavomilos. Its crystal clear water sparkles in the sunlight and pours in through the hole in the cave roof. The lake is over 2om deep in parts. Stalactites, wild pigeons, even wild vegetation at some points, bath and stony anthropomorphic figures make their presence felt both day and night, creating a sense of mystery in a cave that mythology has associated with the divine.
In the 1960’s team of archaeologists discovered a clay figurine of Pan, a disk bearing a representation of Pan surrounded by dancing nymphs, and an impressive statue of a young woman, perhaps that of the nymph Melisaanthe. The one of the version that the locals believe is that the lake owes its name to the nymph, who took her own life because her love for Pan was unrequited. Recent speculation suggests that the Mellisani Lake is the “Cave of the Nymphs” described in the Odyssey.) (entrance fees not included).
Agia Efimia (colourful, tranquil village is located in a bay on the east side of the island. Sailboats from all over the world anchor here and the mixture of languages coming out of the tavernas and bars gives the place quite cosmopolitan air, in the pretty harbour from which there are superb views over to Kefalonia’s sister island Ithaca. Ag. Efimia exudes an atmosphere of traditional Greek hospitality.
Fiscardo (is built on cypress-covered hillsides around hairpin bays and small coves. The name of the town derives from Robert Guiscard, a famous Norman leader and invader who died at sea in 1085 off the cost of Kefalonia. The village suffered less damage in the 1953 earthquake. Amongst some of the amazing sights to see in Fiscardo are the 19th century church, a stone sarcophagus and a depression in the rock measuring 2.3m deep, which the locals call “the throne of Queen Fiscardo”. Many pre-historic developments have been discovered here: Mycenaean, Classical, Roman and Byzantine. Just outside the village, vestiges of a settlement, considered to be the most ancient in the Ionian Islands, were found.
From here to high can be seen Daskalio islet, considered to be the Astris of Homer, where – so the myth goes – Penelope’s suitors waited for Telemachus to return.
The port of ancient Panormou is first mentioned in Homer, and according to the report by Riemann and Parts, it was today’s Fiscardo.
The harbour is usually full of yachts and quayside tavernas and cafes where you can sit and relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere, brushing shoulders with the world famous jet set (Madonna, Penelope Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Tom Cruise, Richard Gere, Johny Depp, Sean Connery, Steven Spielberg, Ambramovich or Royalty…)
