Kefalonia: The Greek island of Captain Corelli's mandolin and one of Onassis' favourite
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands and boasts some of the best beaches of Greece. It is a popular destination with a distinctive charm and is considered to be of the most beautiful islands of the Ionian Sea. Kefalonia has a lot to offer, from beautiful landscape, pebble sandy beaches with clear water, fishing harbours, churches, caves and archaeological sites dating back to the Mycenaean era.
Argostoli is the capital and it's the largest village on the island. It is very cosmopolitan and it offers a variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars lining by the harbour. Near Argostoli, one can find the famous St. Theodore Lighthouse, or as it is locally known, the Fanari, which is one of the most popular sites of the island, featuring on many postcards. Fiscardo is an old fishing village that was saved from the 1953 earthquake. It is the most picturesque village of the island with a Venetian style and a pretty harbour with traditional fishing boats, luxury yachts and daily cruisers. Fiscardo is perhaps the most popular resort of the island with a vibrant night life and a selection of fish restaurants and Greek tavernas, bars and cafes. It is one of Greece's top five destinations, amongst Acropolis, Mykonos and Santorini.Many celebrities, royals and head of states choose to vacation in Fiscardo.
There are daily cruises around the island from Fiscardo harbour. Cruising around the Greek islands is magic! The cruise itinerary includes the small village of Aghia Efimia, the sea cave of Papanikoli, the island of Meganisi and the island of Skorpios. Skorpios was Aristotle Onassis' private island. You can see Maria Callas' private beach and Jackie Onassis' private villa and as you leave the island you can see the church where Onassis and Jackie got married and where Onassis, his son and Jackie are buried.
