I haven't been myself, but I've heard amazing things. The village is very much based around its waterfront with many private yachts and small fishing boats. I would love to sit at small waterfront restaurants and enjoy the food and beautiful views. It seems like one of the nices spots on the island! I would totally visit.

Fiscardo is absolutely beautiful, with a good variety of restaurants and bars. The waterfront is so pretty, with all the boats bobbing around and the colourful venetian buildings, and good food can be found everywhere. Prices are a little higher than other villages on the island, but worth it for the beautiful surroundings and stunning views of Ithaca and Lefkado. Some really nice hotels there too. My personal favourite is the Hotel Almyra, which is a 15 min uphill walk from the village, but is absolutely lovely and has wonderful views. Can't fault it!

So true, prices are a little higher but totally worth it. Greece is still quite affordable in comparison to other tourist destinations. You can always haggle at stores (but not too much, you should still pay people what they're worth).

I have actually never been but from what I understand, scuba diving is a popular activity in the area. In general, Kefalonia is known for being a stunning place with a lot of natural beauty, so no matter where you go on the island, there is always a great outdoor activity to try.

A walking tour of Argostoli, Kefalonia 🏖️

Walking around (or even biking) is one of the best leisurely wats to get to a know an island in Greece. That's why I love to visit Greek islands, is because you usually won't miss anything because everything is so quant and small and walkable. If anyone has any advice about the island of Kefalonia, I would love to know. My best tips that I have to visit in Kefalonia are Katovrahes and Melissani cave.

Single travellers

I am arriving in Argostoli at the end of May. I am a single traveller, dont drive, quite elderly! Anyone have suggestions re trips/excursions? (Am a seasoned visitor to the island).

These are the top monasteries that you should visit in Kefalonia

If you were interested in learning about the Greek Orthodox religion, monasteries are a great way to start. They represent a very traditional and preserved part of the religion, that you will not find in the church. I always recommend visiting operating monasteries so that you can get an opportunity to see the monks. Here are some of the top ones in my opinon

1. Monastery of Argilion
2. Monastery of Agios Andreas
3. Monastery of Lagouvarda
4. Monastery of Sissia

Check out Agia Efimia, Kefalonia

Agia Efimia is a small village on the coast of Kefalonia with amazing beaches and restaurants and hotels. One of the most highly rated restaurants in the village is To Steki, which means "the hangout." The food is so fresh and I highly recommend that you visit after spending some time at the beach :)

Have you ever been to the Castle of Assos in Kefalonia?

The Castle of Assos is an old Venetian fortress that has been left over from the Italian occupation of the island. Today, it is a beautiful pile of ruins that tourists can visit and learn about the history of Greece. You can hire a guy to take you around the different parts and explain the history, but I don't really recommend them as most of the information is available online if you're willing to do your own research. Please let me know if you've ever been! I would love to learn about what you thought of the castle.
