Discover Kefalonia - Island Tour from Kefalonia
Not available from Sami & Agia Efimia
Join us on a coach tour to visit the highlights and the best places on Kefalonia. An excellent opportunity to get a taste of what the beautiful island has to offer. Pay your respects to the island’s patron saint and enjoy a spot of wine-tasting. Visit the magical underground lake of Melissani and the breathtaking cave of Drogarati. Savour a traditional lunch at the fishing village of Agia Efimia and finish the day by photographing the stunning beach of Myrtos, one of the most photographed beaches in Europe.
Your first stop of the day is at the Monastery of St Gerasimos, Kefalonia’s patron saint where you will stay for approximately 20 minutes. Saint’s body is housed in a silver and glass casket in the smaller of the two churches, which was built over a cave where the saint once lived as a hermit. Continue afterwards with a spot of traditional wine tasting at the Robola Winery located next to the monastery. A 30 minute visit includes a guided tour through the factory.
Leaving the Omala valley, you continue to your next destination which will be the breathtaking cave of Drogarati. A 40 minute stay allows time to explore the large underground chamber filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
A further 10 minute drive brings you to the beautiful underground lake of Melissani. Enjoy a boat ride around the cavern, where the sunlight hits the crystal clear water and fills the cave with an amazing blue light while the boat-man will point out the various rock features. You will stay here for approximately 50 minutes.
A short drive through Karavomilos and along the eastern coast will bring you to the picturesque village of Agia Efimia. Stay here for 1 and a half hours allowing time for lunch and to explore the village. On leaving Agia Efimia, begin your return journey via the western coast of the island. Make a short stop for photographs overlooking the stunning beach of Myrtos and a 40 minute leisurely drive will return you to Argostoli.
