Silversea Luxury Cruises À ARGOSTOLI (Cephalonia)

ARGOSTOLI (Cephalonia)

Loggerhead turtles patrol the clear, calm waters of Cephalonia island, which rises majestically out of the Ionian’s emerald green haze. A place of simple, fundamental pleasures, discover this island where lazy waves lap against long, sweeping expanses of silky sand, and contented laughter echoes above tables groaning with platefuls of fresh seafood and generously splashed wine. It’s not always been this peaceful, however. View more

Having survived German and Italian occupations - and the bloodshed of the Greek Civil war - Cephalonia was finally overcome by a devastating earthquake in 1953, which razed practically every structure during a hellish half-minute of destruction. Nowadays, Cephalonia is a heavenly mirage of idyllic beaches, all overlooked by the huge rise of Mount Aenos - a black-pine coated mountain where wild ponies roam freely. Wander the shorefront of Argostoli - along the bustling harbour - and keep an eye out for fishermen lobbing their rejected haul back into the waves. Chances are this daily ritual will summon the loggerhead turtles who cruise these waters and gather to enjoy the free feast. Tuck into a feast of your own in Argostoli’s central Vallianos Square, where mandolins and guitars interplay, and locals wine and dine in shaded bars. Spectacular - if a little hair-raising - roads lace the island, and you can venture out to Vouti Beach to discover crystal-clear waters shifting in hue through the full ombre of blues. Take a long, undisturbed swim in the warm waters, surrounded by flashing fish life and huge, loosely scattered rocks. A refreshing tossed Greek salad awaits on the shore. Fiskardo, meanwhile, is one of the island’s prettiest harbours, where a hubbub of colourful fishing boats are moored within touching distance of tavernas, serving up deliciously grilled sea bream and anchovies.

Cephalonia & Taste of Greek Wine

Embrace the exquisite beauty and flavours of Cephalonia during this half-day sightseeing excursion, and a winery tour and tasting.


Lighthouse and Kourkoumelata

Depart the pier for the brief drive to a unique small lighthouse. After a photo stop for splendid views of the town of Lixouri across the bay, your drive continues for approximately 25 minutes along the Lassi Coast to Kourkoumelata, a lovely village that was rebuilt in the Neo-Classical style following a 1953 earthquake. En route, take in superb views of the lush countryside, beautiful golden beaches and crystal-clear seas. Upon arrival, explore the village at your leisure and marvel at the panoramic views overlooking the sea below.


Monastery of St. Andrew

Next, visit the Monastery of St. Andrew. During the 1953 earthquake, the whitewash covering the inside of the church was loosened and revealed frescoes dating from the 13th and 17th centuries; they are now considered to be the island's greatest artistic treasures. High on a hill opposite the monastery is the Venetian fortress of St. George, which was built on the site of an ancient citadel and features commanding views of the surrounding plain.


Robola Winery, Wine Tasting & Local Snack

Your tour concludes with a visit to the Robola Winery. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the winery and learn about the production methods of the famous and rare Robola wine, which is made from a local species of white grape that comes in red, white and sweet Muscat.
