Kefalonia sight seeing guide

Our Kefalonia sightseeing guide gives you a filterable list of the main sight seeing attractions in Kefalonia, although Kefalonia doesn’t have any ancient historical sites like other islands or the mainland it does have a few things to keep you busy. The main sight seeing attractions are probably the Melissani Lake Caves, the Drogarati Caves, Fanari lighthouse or the castle of Saint George.

Family friendly Kefalonia sights

There aren’t too many family friendly sights in Kefalonia, that’s not to say that the places are dangerous for kids it’s just they’ll probably be bored at them. There’s religious sites, caves and man made structures, none of which offer much for youngsters to do whilst there. Obviously with all the fantastic beaches and hotels with great facilities Kefalonia is still a great place for families.

Historical sites in Kefalonia

As mentioned, Kefalonia doesn’t have a wealth of ancient historical sites, mostly due to the seismic activity that’s happened on the island over the years with one huge earthquake in 1953 destroying a large portion of the islands buildings. There are still a couple with The Tholos Tomb at Tzannata being one and the Acropolis of Sami being another. Check those out below if you are interested in historical sites.

Religious sights in Kefalonia

Kefalonia has a couple of superb monasteries that are well worth a visit, there's Saint Gerasimos which is close to the centre of the island, it's easy to get to and is a beautiful building that's also home to the body of Saint Gerasimos

The second is Kipoureon monastery, it's likely to be a longer trip to get to but it also offers spectacular views over the west coast of Kefalonia from it's perch at the top of the cliffs.

Other Kefalonia sights

Assos castle is a place that's highly recommended, especially as you can combine your trip there with a visit to the gorgeous little village below too.

Melissani cave is also a great option, taking a boat out on the lake, through the cave is a must see whilst in Kefalonia.
