book this shore excursion and discover local tradition and religion on this green greek island

Departure from the Port of Fiscardo and drive towards the east part of the Island. The actual drive is a very scenic coastal drive through charming small villages, beautiful wine yards, olive trees and breathtaking thick cypress glade.

On the western side of the island, the drive is even more spectacular as we view steep bare cliffs, crystal clear blue waters, thick greenery and the beautiful well known beach of Myrtos at the very base of a huge cliff.

We continue our drive even further towards the Eastern Side of Kefalonia to the underground lake of Melissani.  When the sun is directly overhead, its rays strike the ultramarine watered and shatter into a myriad of phantasmagorical colours.

Following our visit of Melissani, we have a short drive to St Gerasimos Nunnery.

It was founded in the 16th century. Gerasimos Notaras became monk when he was very young, he was from Trikala and his family originated from Constantinopolis. He visited the Holy Places, Zante and he arrived at Cephalonia in 1560. He died in 1579 and was declared Saint from the patriarch in 1622. His body is kept in a reliquary at the monastery. In the church is also the entrance of the cave where he lived, where the visitor can wonder around. The cave consists of two rooms and here takes place a strange phenomenon: The hole that unites the two rooms, even though it’s very narrow, allows the entrance to all visitors, no matter their dimensions, and even though it’s muddy, it doesn’t dirt them.

After this visit, we return to Fiscardo where we have free time to explore the most typical Kefalonian Village, with the beautiful traditional colourful houses, the natural port with many jet set yachts, the ample coffee shops and of course a selection of souvenir shops.

In Fiscardo you will have time to wander around the narrow streets or just sit by the harbour viewing the beautiful boats or enjoy the panoramic view of Ithaka Island.
