Description:
Commence a scenic island drive through olive groves, vineyards and thick cypress glades. Your coach will climb Mount Ainos and pass the city of Sami, where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed. See Melissani Lake -- an underground lake fed by subterranean channels with water running to the opposite side of the island. Visit the cave, which is partly open to the elements, accessing it via a manmade tunnel that leads to the shore of the lake. From there, a small boat rowed by a master oarsman will take you over the lake. The boat passes through a channel whose walls sprout eccentric-looking stalactites. The ceiling, more than 300 feet above you, combined with the light coming in from the entrance creates a spectacular and eerie effect of dancing color.
Assos village has long been touted as one of the most beautiful locations on Kefalonia. The setting on the west coast is as spectacular as it is romantic with a horseshoe harbour of cobalt blue overlooked by a hilltop Venetian fortress. It has now been listed as a World Heritage Site. Enjoy some free time here to stroll past the waterfront tavernas, cafés and shops or even have a short swim at the beautiful shady, pebbly beach offering clear waters and views across the bay As you continue on the way back to the port have your cameras ready for a photo stop at Myrtos Bay. This gorgeous overlook features sweeping views of the white pebble bay and Cephalonia's finest beach, where the sea color changes from aquamarine to cobalt blue, contrasting the rocky white cliffs nearby.
