Must Visit

Kefalonia Sightseeing

Fanari Lighthouse

One of the main attractions and trademarks of Argostoli is the lighthouse of Saint Theodore which is located on a man-made peninsula close to the Argostoli village. It is the most romantic spot in Kefalonia and it is highly recommended for taking photographs.

Agios Gerasimos

St. Gerasimos is the patron saint of Kefalonia, so the Monastery of St. Gerasimos is a sacred place for every citizen of Kefalonia. The relics of the Saint are kept in a glass case which is placed above the Saint’s tomb.

Drogarati Cave

Descend the steps and an atmospheric subterranean world awaits you.

More than 300 years ago, a strong earthquake revealed the entrance to a miracle of nature: Drogarati Cave, a work of art, an astonishing marvel of more than 150 million years old, crafted gradually by nature. Orange and yellow stalactites hang from the roof like curtains while vitreous stalagmites emerge to form spacious chambers.

Agia Efimia

A beautiful small village and a port to many excursion cruises. Just opposite from Ithaca.

Assos Village

Just north of the stunning Myrtos beach lays the tiny and secluded village of Assos, which is one of the most beautiful and picturesque villages of the island.
