I am researching Assos Village for a potential trip. From the pictures and descriptions, it seems like a stunning place with its quaint houses, beautiful harbor, and the impressive Venetian Fortress. I would love to get some firsthand insights from those who have visited or locals who know the area well.
  1. Best Time to Visit: When would you say is the ideal time to visit Assos? I’m looking to avoid the crowds but still enjoy good weather.
  2. Must-Do Activities: Are there specific attractions or activities that are a must? I'm interested in both the popular spots and some hidden gems.
  3. Local Cuisine: Any recommendations for local eateries or dishes I should not miss? I'm eager to try authentic local cuisine.
  4. Accommodation Tips: Can anyone suggest cozy, ideally located places to stay in or near Assos Village?
  5. Transportation: What’s the best way to get around? Is renting a car necessary, or is there ample public transportation?
  6. Cultural Etiquette: Are there any local customs or etiquette I should be aware of during my visit?
  7. Day Trips: Finally, are there any easy day trips from Assos that are worth taking?
I appreciate any advice or stories you’re willing to share! My goal is to make the most of my visit and experience Assos Village authentically.
 
Visiting Assos Village in Kefalonia is a fantastic idea! This picturesque village is known for its charming, traditional Greek atmosphere, with colorful houses and narrow streets. Be sure to visit the Venetian Castle for stunning views and a glimpse into the island's history. The beach at Assos is small but beautiful, perfect for a relaxing swim in crystal-clear waters. Enjoy fresh seafood at one of the local tavernas while taking in the scenic harbor views. For the best experience, plan to stay a night or two to fully soak in the tranquility and beauty of this hidden gem.
 
As above . The best way to see Kefalonia is to rent a car, public transport is not great . If you are American , Australian or Canadian, you don't need international drivers permit to rent a car. These days you can't drive up to the fortress, you have to be reasonably fit to walk up in summer. First think in the morning is best. While you are at Assos don't forget to visit one of the best beaches, Myrtos beach. The island is very busy in the summer months, May or September is best if you don't like crowds.
 

Information and Advice about Wine Tasing in Kefalonia

I've heard Kefalonia has some fantastic wineries and unique wines, but I would love to get some recommendations from those who have been there or are familiar with the area.

What are some must-visit wineries in Kefalonia? Are there any specific wine tours or tasting experiences you would recommend? Also, what local wines should I make sure to try while I'm there?

Looking forward to your suggestions and any tips you might have for making the most out of a wine-tasting adventure on this stunning island.

Planning to visit Melissani Cave

I am planning to go to Kefalonia and want to visit Melissani Cave. I am personally very excited about it, but someone in my party is afraid of small spaces (small, dark spaces). Their claustrophobia is actually something they've needed therapy for in the past.

To those of you who have been, do you think this individual should try to find something else to do that day?!

I am not crazy about that aspect of visiting caves either, but I don't have a legit fear like she does. I know that I can relax and enjoy the experience once I get used to the feelings of being in a cave.

Turtles question about Kefalonia

I'm planning an upcoming trip to the beautiful island of Kefalonia and I've heard quite a bit about the turtles that can be seen around the island. 🐢💦

Being a wildlife lover, I'd be thrilled to catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat! I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate insights from those who have visited or are knowledgeable about the local wildlife:
  1. What is the best time of year to observe turtles in Kefalonia?
  2. Are there specific locations where sightings are more common?
  3. Do local conservation efforts support safe viewing that won't disrupt the turtles' natural behavior?
Anything you have to share will be helpful!
