Elsewhere, subterranean lakes, stalactite-encrusted caverns and marine turtles wait to be discovered.
Thanks to a good road network, the island lends itself to easy exploration. Venetian fortresses and Byzantine churches, underground Mycenean tombs dating from 1200BC, a ruined Roman villa with dazzling mosaics, precipitous mountain communities, a host of small fishing villages and the unique Kefalonia Firs jostle for attention.
Towering above at 1627m, Mount Aenos looks down upon a luxurious landscape of pine, olive, cypress, orange, lemon and grape, imbued with the heady scent of wild lavender.
