The cave is 40km deep from the surface of the earth and is 150 million years old. This huge cavern is full of stalactites and stalagmites in different colours and its wonderful acoustics made it a natural setting for music performances by artists such as Maria Callas.

    The Lake of Melissani is a unique geological phenomenon located 2 km northwest of Sami. It’s unthinkable to visit the island and not do the boats trip into this spectacular geological wonder.

Situated 7 km north of Sami on the east coast of Kefalonia and 30 kms from Argostoli, it is a picturesque fishing village with a well sheltered harbor.

    The village exudes an atmosphere of traditional Greek hospitality where visitors are welcomed back as friends. The local harbour is lined with restaurants, tavernas and bars which reflect an uncommercialised Greek ambience rather than tourist-inspired catering.

  5. Myrtos Beach Photostop

    Myrtos-the breathtakingly beautiful beach- has been ranked as the best beach in Greece and among the ten best beaches in the world. Myrtos is best viewed from the road where the full effect of turquoise water lapping the white pebbles.

    The monastery was founded in the Byzantine era and restablished in the 16th century as a convent. The Greek Romanian princess Roxanne donated a large amount in 1630 and lived as a nun here. In the early 19th century the British converted the nunnery into a school and covered the beautiful frescoes with asbest.  At the erathquake of 1953 the white wash fell of the walls and the frescoes were redescovered and renovated. It runs as a convent again and the old church and the neighbour building are used as a museum  with treasures from the 13th to the 19th AD and includes also belongings of other Kefalonian churches. The right sole of Apostle Andreas is kept inside the new church.
