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.
