This museum was established by a resident of Sami named Sotiris Marketos who is a sailor’s son loved building ships and. the sea. He worked in the shipping industry for many years and felt that the island needed a nautical museum!! The museum is housed in the former primary school of Fiscardo and it was renovated into the beautiful museum that it is today. Check it out next time you visit, I highly recommend it.

This is one thing I didn't end up having time for when I was on Kefalonia. It looks interesting!

Such a great nautical history through Greece. This museum does a great job giving an overview.
 

Which port is best to rent a boat: Sami or Poros?

I'm thinking of renting a boat to travel around the island and the nearby waters. Which port is it best to leave from? Does it make a difference?

Here is a COVID update for visitors traveling to Kefalonia

Here is an update if anyone is interested :)

The Iakovatios library and museum in Kefalonia

This museum and library has so much history. I would love to hear personal reviews if anyone has been. It is housed in an old mansion that was owned by the Typaldi-Iakovatios family. It is one of those places that survived after the massive earthquake that hit the island. However, it did sustain some damage during it. The mansion was restored in 1984 and is now home to a vast collection of books (around 20,000) and other collectibles.

How can I avoid the crowds in Kefalonia?

I don't really want to get caught up in the touristy areas...where should I avoid in Kefalonia?
