Day 4 -- Zakynhtos - Kefalonia ( 46 miles )

Kefallonia is the largest of the Ionian islands. The capital of the island is the town of Argostoli. It is a lively place, especially in the summer months, with much of the action taking place around its main square (panoramic view, will take you to external site). Argostoli is a modern town that offers many entertainment and shopping opportunities, while still maintaining its charm. Argostoli, as well as all the other towns and villages of the island, was completely rebuilt after the earthquake that struck in 1953. The only area that was spared from the earthquake was Fiskardo. For this reason Fiskardo retains the old architecture, making it the most beautiful village on the island. The second largest town of Kefallonia is Lixouri, on the Pali peninsula. The Mellisani Cave is an underground seawater lake featured in most guidebooks because of the amazing colour of the sea.


Day 5 -- Kefalonia - Ithaca ( 17 miles )

Throughout the ages Ithaki has been known as the home of Odysseus. For years Homer's hero wandered before he finally returned to his island kingdom. The west coast of the island is steep and almost barren in contrast to the green, gentle shoreline on the east. The capital and largest settlement is Ithaki or Vathi: its red-roofed delightful houses set amidst enchanting scenery at the end of the deep closed bay of Molos. Three kilometres to the northwest lies the so-called Cave of the Nymphs (Nimfon Cave). Also worth visiting is the medieval Monastery of the Archangels at Perahori. North of the capital and 600 metres above sea level, the Kathara Monastery (Moni Katharon).

The main port of Paxoi, Gaios, has a very protected natural harbour that can host almost 200 boats, because of a small island that stands at the front, blocking the wind and the waves. The other two villages Loggos and Langada are also extremely beautiful and picturesque. Special mention must be made for the thousand of sea caves that you can visit either swimming or by boat.

It seems to be a favorite destination for tourists from all over the world. A stroll through the streets of Parga reveals an "island flavor" with the multitude of the tourist shops and tavernas lined up on both sides and the carefree tourists that constantly stroll up and down the narrow corridors. A short walk through the steep streets would take you to the castle that reveals a bird's eye view of the ceramic rooftops of the town, the small beach in its center, and on the other side of the hill a glimpse of the large and very popular Valtos Beach where swimming is best.
