The village of Fiskardo is in the Erisos region and is one of the northernmost settlements on Kefalonia; it is one of the few places on the island not to have been levelled by the earthquake that struck in August 1953. Because it escaped relatively unscathed, it is one of the few settlements in the area to still retain much of the Venetian architecture left over from their governance of the island between 1500 – 1797.
Much of this architecture can be found in the area directly by the waterfront, where the traditional narrow streets meet the quayside. On the quayside are many shops and numerous places to eat, drink and watch the world go by.
In the summer months you will most likely see many expensive yachts moored up, some of which are owned by the rich and famous.
There are a number of walking trails in the area and you will find easy to follow notice boards around the village.

John H ”we found the north of Kefalonia to be stunningly picturesque and thoroughly enjoyed staying in both Assos and Fiskardo”

Ann B ”We absolutely loved Fiskardo, so pretty and on our 2nd holiday in 2020 we were very lucky to spend 5 days there staying at the Fiscardo Bay Hotel…..

…..which has stunning views of Ithaca and the lovely harbour at Fiskardo. Whilst in Fiskardo we visited, Assos, Alaties Beach, Foki Beach, Emplissi Beach and Myrtos”
