    Tour Code: arm-004

    Commence a scenic island drive through olive groves, vineyards and thick cypress glades. Your coach will climb Mt Ainos and pass the city of Sami, where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed. You will see Melissani Lake, an underground lake fed by subterranean channels with water running to the opposite side of the island. You will visit the cave, which is partly open to the elements, accessing it via a manmade tunnel that leads to the shore of the lake.

    From there, a small boat rowed by a master oarsman will take you across the lake. The boat passes through a channel whose walls sprout eccentric-looking stalactites. The more than 300-foot ceiling and the light coming in from the entrance create a spectacularly eerie effect of dancing colors.

    Fiskardo village is the most picturesque village on the island, being the only settlement that was not devastated by the 1953 earthquake. Enjoy some free time here to stroll past the waterfront tavernas, caf├ęs and shops before returning to Argostoli.
