If the name of Argostoli doesn’t sound familiar to holiday-makers, the name ‘Cefalonia’ (or ‘Kefalonia’) almost certainly will, as this island is the setting for the immensely popular film and novel, ‘Captain Corelli's Mandolin’.

This leisurely half day off the ship begins with a scenic drive around the enchanting Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian islands that is well known for its population of loggerhead turtles, an endangered species, and their nesting sites at Kaminia beach. Photo stops will made at Myrtos beach, where the sea is an incredible turquoise colour, and Assos, a pretty little fishing village with a natural harbour and beach. After a little time to enjoy the scenery and lovely views, the tour continues on to Fiscardo, another picturesque fishing village that, along with the surrounding dense forestation, has been declared an area of great natural beauty that is protected under Greek law. You will have some time to explore the village before you begin your return journey back to Argostoli and your ship.

Leave the port of Argostoli and drive to the Monastery of St. Andrew where we will have some free time before heading to Melissani Caves. The name of the caves comes from the Greek nymph Melissanthi. The cave is B-shaped with two halls filled with water and an islet in the middle; the lake water is a mixture of sea water and fresh water. As sightseeing is thirsty work, our next stop will be for a wine tasting session at Robola before continuing to the village of Sami where you can relax at your leisure. Capture memories of your day out with photo stop at the picturesque Myrthos beach.

A 45-minute bus drive will take you to one of the most stunning cave complexes in the world discovered following an earthquake 300 years ago. Admire the numerous stalactites and stalagmites created more than 100 million years ago, with an exceptional walk through the accessible part of the cave to the stunning cavern known as the “Apotheosis Chamber” due to its excellent acoustics. We will continue with a 45-minute transfer to the pristine Myrtos beach, a wide, graceful arc of shimmering sand and pebbles protected by staggeringly steep cliffs. Free time here and a chance to swim in the sea.

Please note: the tour includes walking on uneven ground; due to the strong currents at Myrtos beach it is advisable to remain close to the shore while swimming. Beach chair and sun umbrella are not included; you have the possibility to rent them on the spot. This tour is run from June through all September.
