A position of privilege

Kefalonia is the quintessence of Greece, where past and present coexist harmoniously, and myth blends together with reality, giving you a kaleidoscope of colours, flavours, im-ages and sounds to hold in your heart forever.

An MSC Mediterranean Cruise will take you to the Greek archipelago in the uncontami-nated paradise of Kefalonia, one of the islands immersed in the Ionian Sea. You will have the opportunity to see the "Caretta Caretta" turtles that swim undisturbed. The island will welcome you in its friendly and relaxed atmosphere, spectacular sceneries and shal-low crystal-clear waters, abundant in colourful fish.

An MSC Excursion will show you Argostoli, the island's capital, a thriving city located in the long recess within a sandy bay, soft pastel-coloured landscapes and Mediterranean vegetation. The water over this stretch of coast submerges the rocks and disappears un-derground as if by magic. You can go for a stroll down the beaches of this natural para-dise, enjoying a perfect sense of relaxation.

Whichever activity you may choose to do during one of the MSC Excursions, the island of Kefalonia will bless you with a deep sense of wellbeing. Choose to immerse yourself in the island's nightlife, or enjoy the blissful paradises of the most spectacular Greek natural oases, such as the Myrtos beach located in the Pylaros region, in the northwest of Kefalonia. From the top of the mountains that surround the island, you can enjoy breath-taking views and take memorable photos.

Another MSC Excursion will take you to the Cave of the nymphs, a mysterious and fasci-nating place of unique beauty. The fantastic caves of Kefalonia host the waters of the hidden Melissani lake. The light that penetrates the cracks in the vaults of the grotto dances on the surface of the upstream water that surfaces from twenty-meters under-ground, and is partly salty and partly sweet.

    Under the protective wing of the gods

    It would take a lifetime of island-hopping to fully appreciate the 227 inhabited Greek islands scattered across the Mediterranean Sea.
    With sapphire water lapping at rocky coastlines sprinkled with secret coves and sandy beaches, they are the stuff of dreamy travel posters, the very definition of the eulogized Greek summer of sun, sea and sand.

    For anyone with a cultural bone in their body a cruise to the Greek islands cannot fail to inspire. Every culture has left its mark, and almost every town or village has a link to the past, whether it’s a delicately crumbling temple to Aphrodite, a forbidding Venetian fort or a dusty Byzantine monastery decorated with exquisite frescoes. 

    But the call to cultural duty will never be too overwhelming on a Greek islands holiday. The hedonistic pleasures of languor and warmth – swimming in balmy seas at dusk, talking and drinking under the stars – are just as appealing.
    Sprawling, globalized Athens is an obligatory, almost unavoidable introduction to Greece: aside from the show-stopping Acropolis it offers a truly metropolitan range of cultural diversions, from museums to concerts; well-stocked shops; gourmet restaurants and stimulating clubs.
