Top 5 travel tips in Kefalonia

1. The gem of Kefalonia: Fiskardo

Many of the villages on the island were destroyed in the 1953 earthquake, but the former fishing village of Fiskardo is one of the few that has survived and will transport you back in time. The village has preserved its traditional coloured buildings and a must experience when visiting the village is having a walk at sunset along the main coastal road brimming with fine restaurants and taverns. Don't forget about the walking trail to the lighthouse... magic!

2. An awe-inspiring cave

You cannot miss one of the most incredible sights on the island: the Melissani cave! It was opened to the public in 1963 and is located about 2 metres away from the town of Sami. It would be better to visit on sunny days because it is possible to see the rays of the sun shining down on the roof. A memorable sight and a great experience. Check out our apartments in Kefalonia to find out which one has the best location close to all these places of interest.

3. An ancient beauty, the Castle of Agios Georgios

The Venetian-style castle, once the capital of Kefalonia, was probably built around the 12th century by the Byzantine emperors. Although the castle has been damaged by the earthquake, some of the walls have been preserved and can be viewed. Be careful when visiting the castle outside in summer because it might be closed. Make sure to check the opening hours!

The Greek legends are usually related to places, indeed the highest peak of Mount Ainos used to be a sanctuary dedicated to Zeus, the king of the goods!

5. Robola wine, the golden-coloured wine
