The cave is 100m long and a third is taken up by the lake which is 100 feet deep in places. It was officially discovered by Austrian divers and opened to the public in 1963. However, the locals were aware of it's existence many years earlier.

The Drogarati Caves are estimated to be in excess of 150 million years old. The caves were opened to the public in 1963 and have beautiful and rare stalagmites and stalactites. The acoustics in the cave are so good concerts are sometimes held there.

Sami is the former capital and a ferry port. Much of Louis de Berniere's film "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" was filmed here. The town has many restaurants and tavernas. From the port you can catch a ferry and visit Ithaca for a day, or travel to the Greek mainland or Italy. Close to Sami is the Bavarian Equestrian Centre which caters for both novices and experienced riders.

Assos is a picturesque village built on the neck of an enchanting peninsula. There is a bustling town square, lovely tavernas and a 15th century castle overlooking the town and Ionian sea.

This is the most northernmost port of Kefalonia. Some consider Fiscardo to be the island's most picturesque village, and prices reflect this. Located on a different geological plate to the rest of the island, it was unaffected by the 1953 earthquake. Therefore, the village has some of the oldest buildings on the island.
