Kefalonia Island Tour

28 reviews
Commence a scenic island drive through olive groves, vineyards and thick cypress glades. Passing through the Mount Aenos you will visit the Robola Winery and taste the famous Robola variety of wine. Explore the Drogarati Caves, famous for their acoustics. Visit the geological phenomenon that is the Melissani Lake which is in an underground cave. Next, we go for lunch to the cosmopolitan village of Fiscardo, untouched after the great earthquake of 1953. Leaving Fiscardo you will head to the little fishing village of Assos, which gives the impression of being an island of its own. En route on our way back, you’ll make a photo stop at Myrtos Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.<br><br>What you will see:<br>• Robola Winery – Visit inside, wine tasting<br>• Drogarati Cave – Visit inside<br>• Melissani Lake – Visit inside, boat ride<br>• Fiscardo Village – Lunch break (optional)<br>• Assos Village – Coffee stop<br>• Photo-stop at Myrtos beach

We walked from Argostoli to the walls and then back down through the gorge near the bridge. Took us two and half hours. Start at the far end of the laggon, follow signed track up the hill - quite steep in places. Come back down on the opposite side, follow the Sami road and then right down the hill through the gorge towards the Dragoni bridge..

Although I’ve visited the island many times this was my first trip to the Cyclopean Walls- its a bit like a well kept secret, not many people know about the walk and the giant stones above the area known as Krania. We were particularly fortunate as a local resident led the way along old shepherd tracks to the summit of a hill where we were shown the giant stones marking the ancient city of Krane, dating back to 3-5BC when the island consisted of states, the largest being Sami, a long time before Argostoli was even in existence. The circular walk took about 2.5 hours and sturdy footwear was essential. If you enjoy going off the beaten track then this is for you- start opposite the builder’s yard on the Koutavos road and follow the red spots of paint on the rocks.

On the road out of Argostoli to Sami, there is a sharp right turn at traffic lights that takes you to Razata where , if you're lucky, you will spot a small, insignificant sign to the Cyclopean city of Krani on the right hand side of the road. Turning down the unmade track leads you to a small parking area under the pine trees. Be prepared to be amazed as you discover the walls that surround this site of the former major settlement of Ancient Krani, constructed over 7000 years ago, pre-pyramid, by so-called Cyclopean people, who must have been giants (Cyclops) to have been able to lay such huge stones to make the walls. In places, the walls look in good repair, but time and acid rains have caused much deterioration. Take care to wear stout boots or walking shoes as the ground is uneven, and the way is marked by prickly shrubs...do not attempt this visit in jandals, flip-flops or open-toed sandals...you will regret it. The views from the top of the site offer a reward for those of you prepared to make the difficult walk up to it. Enjoy!

I visit this beautiful island every year and this was the first time visiting the Cyclopean Wall of Krani and it is well worth a visit, especially if you're into history! It's a bit out of the way and not widely promoted but it definitely deserves far more recognition. It isn't until you get there that you appreciate the sheer enormity of the task that was undertaken to create the wall. With huge stones, several tonnes each all fitting together like a jigsaw puzzle you can't help but wonder just how it was built all those years ago, when, even with the technology today, it would seem impossible! Follow the wall along, with a small climb to see one of the several towers/posts created along it's length to guard the old city. Absolutely incredible, well worth a visit.

Cyclopean Wall is good for people who love history. Though the way to this place is not very easily marked, you have to look carefully for a small sign to the place. Quite inside on a rough road. No tickets needed it is free. Geerks have built the structure very nicely
