1. Kefalonia: Half-Day Lake Melissani and Drogarati Cave Tour
See Kefalonia Island's top sights on a guided half-day trip. Get scenic views from the slopes of Mt. Ainos, marvel at the vast underground Melissani Lake, and see Drogarati Cave's famous Sala of Apotheosis. Set off on a scenic drive through the lush Greek countryside, rich with vineyards, olive orchards, and cypress groves. Cross the breathtaking slopes of Mt. Ainos, one of the highest peaks in Greece, to reach the shores of Lake Melissani. Head underground through a manmade tunnel to reach the water. Board a small rowboat for a scenic cruise around the majestic cavern, which once held ancient relics from a Minoan culture, including figures of the god Pan and several nymphs. As you sail through the lake, take in sights of dramatic stalactites and stalagmites and watch as shafts of sunlight from above hit the aquamarine waters. Return to the surface and continue your journey to Drogarati Cave, located nearly 200 feet below the surface. Explore this majestic 2 million-year-old cavern's stunning rock formations and a magnificent hall called "Sala of Apotheosis", with acoustics so perfect it is used for live performances.
