Kefalonia Cruises


The historic harbour village of Fiskardo (sometimes spelt Fiscardo) is one of the most beautiful – and popular – parts of Kefalonia. Situated at the northern tip of the island, it’s undeniably one of the highlights of any trip to this unique Greek island.

Fiskardo is the only part of Kefalonia that retains much of its original Venetian architecture, making it a really special place on the island to visit. A lot of the island’s buildings were destroyed in the earthquake of 1953, as featured in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Its winding waterfront is lined with luxury boats, up market seafood restaurants, and is home to some of the priciest real estate in all of Greece thanks to the patronage of the rich and the famous who drops by on the mega yachts.


The village of Assos in Kefalonia is a charming village perched on the water’s edge. The village is full of Venetian ruins most notably the ruins of an old Venetian castle. Assos is made up of pebbled beaches, traditional buildings and colorful houses. It is a beautiful village with narrow alleys full of flowering foliage and old churches. This castle is a stunning example of Venetian architecture. Visiting this castle requires quite a long walk.

The route will take you through stunning olive tree forests to the arched entrance. Fortunately the arch itself is one of the most preserved parts of all the ruins. Assos is truly picturesque and although it’s popular its beautiful scenery and tranquil atmosphere more than make up for it.
