hrs Estimate Duration
Commence a scenic island drive through olive groves, vineyards and thick cypress glades. Your coach will then climb Mt Ainos and pass the city of Sami, where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed.
After approximately one hour, you will arrive at Melissani Lake, an underground lake fed by subterranean channels with water running to the opposite side of the island. You'll enter the lake by small boat, paddled in so it hardly disturbs the surface of the water, which is a brackish mix of saltwater from the Ionian Sea and freshwater that originated back in Argostoli and then flowed across the island. The stalactites hanging from the ceiling here are estimated to be at least 20,000 years old and the shafts of light that come in from 100 feet above where parts of the ceiling collapsed decades ago, creates a magical atmosphere.
Continuing on, you will have a photo stop at Myrtos Beach. Nestled at the foot of steep limestone cliffs, this strip of pristine beach with its brilliant blue waters, has consistently been voted as one of Greece's top 10 beaches.
Your final stop is at Fiskardo village, considered the the most picturesque village on the island, was the only settlement that was not devastated by the 1953 earthquake. You'll have nearly an hour of free time here to stroll past the waterfront tavernas, cafés and shops before it's time to rejoin your coach and return to Argostoli.
