Cruise to the "Saint-Tropez of Greece"

The most remarkable thing about Fiskardo is that it exists at all. In August 1953, three major earthquakes struck the island of Cephalonia, and destroyed almost every structure. The town of Fiskardo with its stately Venetian houses was one of the few spared.

So pastel buildings with green shutters still grace the sweep of a bay full of yachts, and beckoning village streets are lined with stylish shops, tempting patisseries, and cafés just perfect for soaking up the local scene. A coastal boat ride reveals secluded coves and shingle beaches fringed with olive groves, and seaside tavernas are perfect for a delightful evening ashore.
