Our adventure begins once we leave the town of Argostoli and head off to St. George’s castle, a castle/fortress that was built almost 800 years ago and used to be the capital of the island for centuries.
As we move on to our next destinations, first we head towards the valley of “Omala”.
There we visit the “Robolla” wine Co-operative where we discover the special taste of this Kefalonian grape variety and we also visit the grand monastery of “St. Gerasimos”, the patron saint of the Island.
Moving on with our tour, we pass-by all-green landscapes to reach the base of the mountain “Aenos” and head north-east, to the “Drogarati” cave where we take the steps down into this majestic cave, saunter around it admiring the impressive formations of stalactites & stalagmites and the chambers that nature carves throughout the centuries.
After a little time of rest & the opportunity to have a cool drink & to shop in the little gift shops around the area, we continue our tour making for the mythical home of the Nymphs, the extraordinary “Melissani” cave lake. There we have the chance to have a little boat ride inside the lake and admire the crystal aquamarine waters.
Keeping our course to the east, we head towards the bay of "Agia Effimia" for lunch.
This namesake beautiful traditional fishing village is one of the hotspots of the island, has amazing views & unique charm. After we spend our time feasting on delicious local flavors & enjoying the atmosphere the place offers, we make a brief stop to admire the magnificent “Myrtos” bay from above & take some photos.
Finally a short bus ride, with unforgettable views from above to the town of Argostoli, finds us back where we began our day out.
