Fiscardo – Greece’s prettiest village?

Fiscardo on the northern tip of Kefalonia or Cephalonia is a real contender – critics complain that it shuts down in winter, but really, when something is this lovely the rest of the time, does it matter? The corniche drive from the airport up to here is breathtaking – the road snakes vertiginously along the cliffs, and far below shine the white beaches and blue water . At  this time of year, wisps of sea fog out on the horizon somewhere  towards Sicily catch the early morning sun. Breakfast in  the little port of Assos on the way is a must as well – Greece’s second prettiest village?

I took these 3 days ago, a typical October morning;




  1. I prefer Assos’s calm to the hustle and bustle of Fiscardo. Both are fantastic places.

    We visit Assos every time we are in Kefalonia.
    Kefalonia is one of the best Greek Islands.
