Fiscardo

The Greek Harbourside Village

 

Fiscardo is the picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian islands. Of the approximate 365 villages on this large and diverse island, Fiscardo is unique in that it is the only village on Kefalonia that has so many of the original Venetian buildings intact and still in use.

Traditional Fiscardo

Traditional Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer.
If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish.
Otherwise a stroll around the harbour will take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts.
Many of these are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo.

Fiscardo Waterfront

The harbour is lined by a plethora of inviting cafe’s, coffee shops restaurants, bars and shops. The colorful tables and chairs of the waterside cafes line the quayside. Beautiful people explore the village whilst luxurious yachts and boats jostle for space.
Twice a daily, reality returns as the car ferry from Lefkas steams into the harbour, sounding its foghorn loudly to announce it’s arrival and warning yachtsmen to clear it’s path to the quayside.

Fiscardo by Night

Fiscardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective. The lights, the old buildings, caf├ęs, bars and restaurants all combine to create a magical Mediterranean atmosphere. Of all the villages on Kefalonia, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambience, especially on a summer evening.
For people watchers a wonderful opportunity to observe the interactions and the interesting fashion statements of their fellow visitors!
