Fiskardo Holidays at a Glance

Book Fiskardo holidays and arrive at a picturesque and beautiful harbour village located on the northern tip of the island. Kefalonia has 365 villages and boasts stunning views, wild flowers and rugged landscapes. Fiskardo is often referred to jewel in the crown of Kefalonia that survived an earthquake in 1953 where much of Kefalonia's old architect was destroyed. Fiskardo was unscathed because much of the tremor was absorbed by the bed of limestone sitting under the village. Those on Fiskardo holidays should spare some time to visit the small museum at the top of harbour with photos of how the village once looked.

To compliment your meal, restaurants offer a number of delicious, inexpensive local wines varying from area to area. Or try a glass of ouzo, Greece's national drink.
