Kefalonia in Blues and Greens - Argostoli - 2019 ( 7 Hours )
Argostóli, Greece | 14 May 2019

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Our day on the Ionian island of Kefalonia begins in port in Argostoli, the picturesque capital city fronting the lagoon of Koutavos and backed by forested mountains. After a welcome of traditional Kefalonian sweets, we’ll make our way to the botanical garden to discover the wild and endemic plants of the island, learn about current conservation efforts, and have a flavorful herb tasting. Our next stop is St. Andreas Monastery, featuring precious 13th- and 17th-century frescoes that were revealed after damage during a devastating earthquake in 1953. We continue to the subterranean Melissani Lake, an enchanting spot once known as “the cave of the nymphs.” This tranquil spot contrasts beautifully with our next stop: a scenic overlook to Myrtos beach, where a white-sand cove nestles between soaring hillsides, washed with turquoise and lapis waters. We’ll end at Katavothres restaurant, situated above an interesting geological phenomenon of seawater-filled sinkholes. We’ll savor a lunch of traditional specialties such as lemon pork with fresh herbs and brown rice before returning to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire, sun protection, and comfortable walking shoes.
