St George Castle, Melissani Lake and the Drogarati Caves: discover Kefalonia's most fascinating historic and natural sights on this day trip from Zante.
Kefalonia Day Trip
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Zakynthos at 8 am and set off to the local port, where a boat will be waiting to take us to the neighbouring island of Kefalonia.
After a half-hour cruise between the Greek islands, we'll disembark and visit the St George Castle, the perfect place to learn all about the legendary siege of Kefalonia. After exploring the ruins of this ancient fortress, which is located more than 300 metres above sea level, we'll make our way to the Monastery of Agios Gerasimos, the island's patron saint.
As well as admiring the exterior of the temple, which is considered one of the most important sacred places in Kefalonia, we'll also have a view of Mount Ainos. This small peak happens to be an extension of a mountain range that crosses Albania and Serbia!
During our Kefalonia day trip, we'll also visit the Drogarati Caves, an impressive natural cavern that often plays host to concert thanks to its incredible acoustics. We'll reveal the secrets of the cave while admiring its stalactites and stalagmites.
After half an hour visiting the caves, we'll head to Melissani Lake. You're sure to be enchanted by this completely magical place! We'll board a boat and sail across the cave lagoon to get the best possible views of its dazzling turquoise waters.
Who's hungry? After the boat cruise, we'll go to the village of Aghia Efimia, where you'll have free time to get some lunch in a local restaurant. We'll then meet back up again after eating and pay a visit to Myrtos Beach to admire the beautiful views of the Ionian Sea.
Finally, we'll visit Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. From here, we'll take the boat back to Zante. The tour will end back at your hotel at approximately 7:30 pm.
