Kefalonia is one of the largest islands of Greece and part of the seven islands of the Eptanese island complex in the Ionian Sea in western Greece. Like all the islands of the Ionian Sea, Kefalonia combines beautiful beaches, a green environment across its area and interesting routes between the picrturesque villages and settlements.
Argostoli is the capital town of the island and holds one third of the total population of approximately 40,000 inhabitants.
Kefalonia has an interesting history that begins in the ancient years with a great archaeological significance and rises up to the era of Venetian and Roman rule in the Middle Ages. Its guests have the opportunity to visit the traditional village of Fiskardo and Assos, which maintain a very charactersitic architecture and offer a unique by the sea experience with the small shops and the tavernas with the local delicacies.
