While your stay in Zakynthos dont miss the opportunity to visit the magestic island of Kefalonia. After a scenic ferry ride, enjoy an island bus tour led by an expert escort and visit all the highlights such as the impressive Drogarati Cave, the breathtaking Melissani underground lake, the beautiful Argostoli which is the capital of the island and many more.
After your morning pick up from your central located hotel in Zakynthos, head to port and board on the ferry for Kefalonia. Arriving at Kefalonia island, first stop is at the monastery of St. Gerassimos, the patron of the Island. St Gerassimos was known for his miraculous abilities and the monastery is considered one of the most sacred pilgrimages in Kefalonia.

Following a roof cave-in, an impressive sight has been created causing the colors of the water to be reflected onto the walls of the cave.
