Fiscardo is one of the few Kefalonian villages left intact following the earthquake of 1953. It is a very picturesque village still preserving its Venetian style with pastel coloured buildings due to the strict conservation laws applied in the area. The built-up area is spread across two small bays leading to the stunning harbour with its attractive selection of restaurants, shops and bars. Enjoy an evening stroll along the cosmopolitan harbour side, taste the local and Mediterranean cuisine at the waterfront restaurants, buy some souvenirs and then relax with a drink or ice-cream looking at the impressive yachts.
