Departure from Argostoli
Argostoli has been the capital of the Kefalonia Region since 1757. It’s a modern city with a remarkable historical and cultural tradition. Amphitheatrically built around Koutavos Lagoon, Argostoli, overlooks the fir tree-covered mount Aenos.
Nature’s splendour is manifested in every centimetre of this unique sculpture of earth and rock. Visitors will be awe-struck at the moment they step into this laboratory of nature, where stalactites and stalagmites have been taking shape for thousands of years.
A short tour by a rowing boat in Melissani lake – a wonderful underground lake with majestic stalactites, where some kind of worship of God Pan took place in ancient times. When illuminated by the sun’s rays, the lake waters acquire sublime colourful reflections
Sami is a beautiful town built by the seafront and one of the four major cities comprising the four-state island of Kefalonia. Sami was well-known since Homeric times and later on remained in history for its resistance to the Romans. It is the second biggest port of Kefalonia which connects it with Italy and one of the island’s most important coastal resorts. In 2001 captain Corelli’s mandolin was filmed at Sami, granting this quaint settlement international recognition. The next stop on the itinerary is the picturesque village of Agia Efimia. With wide streets, good urban planning, and a lively port where numerous yachts from all over the world flock in the summertime, there is plenty to see and do.
Myrtos is the most famous beach on the island and one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, with spectacular views and snow-white sands. This is a slice of paradise on earth, protected by high rocks with stunning, crystalline waters ranging from blue-green to deep blue.
