KEFALONIA

In the Ionian Sea, among the other exotic islands, Κefalonia stands majestically. The island has a long history that starts back to the prehistoric era. It flourished in the Classical period and tested by many conquerors because of its strategic position. Ruins of powerful ancient cities have been found in many areas of the island, impressive Mycenaean tombs reinforce the theory that the famous king of Ithaca, Odysseus, is buried in Kefalonia and many ancient treasures are exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Argostoli. Multiphotographed, multi-discussed, beloved. Within and outside borders. Not only because of the film “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” was filmed here, but also because of her beauty. The manor cities. The wonderful sights. Argostoli, Lixouri, Fiscardo, Cave of Melissani. The largest of the Ionian, Kefalonia, with breathtaking beaches and green mountains has always been a very popular destination. The capital of Kefalonia, Argostoli is built on a hillside and has the port stretched out in front of it, a city with many attractions, restaurants and other recreational places. On the northern side of the island, Fiskardo is a traditional settlement with traditional houses and a special color, a place where many boats sail to enjoy the wonderful bay and internationally known gourmet restaurants. Another worthwhile place to visit is the Cave and the Lake Melissani.
