What a pleasant surprise. We only spent from 12 midday to 6:00pm at Argostoli and most of that was spent on a tour to Drogarati Cave and Mellisani Lake but it turned out to be more about the journey than the destination.
Argostoli is on Keffalonia Island. All buildings on the island were destroyed in an earthquake in 1953 so there are no old parts and it is very neat. It is also much more vegetated than the other Greek islands we have visited so the overall effect is green.
The Lake was fascinating in that it is effectively a sink hole in the landscape filled with crystal clear water. Part of the lake goes into a cave complete with bats. Access is by row boat. If you were there with very few other people, it would be fantastic but, in our case, we queued for 45 minutes to spend 10 minutes in the cave!
The best part of the tour was the bus tip in which we saw much of the island including several of its very nice beaches. We could come here again.
That's the last tour. We spend tomorrow on the ship heading for Venice where we arrive on Friday morning We have our disembarkation instructions for 9:15. Our flight leaves at 3:30.
What a fabulous trip we have had. If anything interesting happens, there will be another blog but this may well be the last one until our next adventure. I hope those following the blog have enjoyed following it as much as we have enjoyed providing the material for it.
