Day 1:Welcome to Kefalonia! Upon arrival you will be transferred to your hotel. Kefalonia (Cephalonia) is the largest of the Ionian Islands. Don’t miss the views from the Castle at Assos of the blue turquoise waters of Myrtos Bay, famous for its soft white sandy beaches. Take a swim in the crystal clear waters of Poros or go up to Mt. Enos (1,628 meters above sea level). The slopes are lined with cedar-like fir trees that grow nowhere else in the world. Drive around the countryside and see groves filled with olive and orange trees, grapevines, golden beaches and deep coves and caves. Visit the Cave at Melisani, which is partially covered with a subterranean lake that shatters into a myriad of colors when the sun shines on the water. Also visit Dogorati caves famous for its unusual stalagmites. Just 1.5 kilometers from Argostoli, observe the rate geological phenomenon of Katavothres (swallow-hole) where the sea water “disappears” into the openings of the rocks and travel underground across the island emerging at Melisanni. Visit the capital city of Argostoli and its Archaeological and Folk Art Museums. Don’t miss the wonderful icon collection at the Monastery of Agios Andreas near the village of Peratata and the Castle of St. George built by the Venetians in 1504. The area of Katelios in the southeast of the island has two outstanding beaches.
