Kefalonia Venetian Cruise
Εvery Monday – NOT AVAILABLE FOR 2021
Duration: 6 hours approximately Starting at 9:45 am / Ending 16:00
A sailing Cruise in Kefalonia not to be missed!!
Gently cruise up the east coast of Kefalonia, making a stop off the coast of our sister island of Ithaka at the beautiful bay of Polis. Stop for swimming and sunbathing directly over the ancient sunken city of Ierusalim which dates back to the 2nd century. Continue cruising across the channel to reach the old Venetian town of Fiskardo in Kefalonia for lunch at the many old mansions, spot the rich and famous onboard their luxury cruisers or coffee along the quayside.
After transferring by coach to the port of Agia Efimia we will board our cruise boat for the day, departing at approximately 09.45. Just over an hour’s sail will see us arriving into the port of Polis on the island of Ithaka. Here, the boat will drop its anchor for an hour and people can swim to the shore to sunbathe on the beach or simply swim in the sea. This is the site of the sunken city of Ierusalim, a thriving town which was built onto the slopes of Pillicata during the second century AD. After strong earthquakes in 987 AD, causing landslides the city sank into the sea, where it has remained ever since. Nowadays, the old town is covered by sand and silt but the roofs and walls of the houses remained visible until a few decades ago. Leaving here, half an hour’s sail will bring us to the exclusive resort and stunning harbour of Fiskardo, at the Northern tip of Kefalonia.
The boat will dock here allowing plenty of free time to explore the town, to visit the recently excavated Roman cemetery, to stroll round the graphic little streets with traditional Greek architecture, shop for souvenirs, and enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the many old Venetian mansions which line the quayside. Fiskardo is the playground of the rich and famous, many luxury cruisers moor here during high season. We will stay for approximately 2 hours.
Once back on the boat we will enjoy a relaxing cruise back down the east coast of Kefalonia taking us back to Agia Efimia at approximately 16.00 where the coaches will be waiting to return everyone to their resorts.
