The One Thing You Don't Want To Miss

The floors of the villa alone are well worth a trek out here – mosaic patterns remain intact, even after several earthquakes tore through the island.

Other Fun Things To Do

  • Go down multi-colored underground lakes and see dramatic stalactites and stalagmites in the Melissani caves.
  • Sit back and people watch at the bustling square Plateia Valianou, which is chockfull of shops, cafes and restaurants.
  • Venture through the mountainous side of Kefalonia on horseback, and pass through the ruins of ancient villages on your way to the top.

Get A Taste Of Local Flavor

Don't leave Argostoli without trying a few of their local specialties. Try a hearty Kefalonian meat pie for lunch, and wash it down with a glass of Robola, the local wine produced on the island. Drop by the bakery on Argostoli's main thoroughfare for a round cheese pie, and pick up some bread to drizzle local thyme honey on.
