Day 2-

Holy Tuesday

Wake to the view of the pacifying sea and get ready to visit the island’s capital, the beautiful town of Argostoli. If fasting is not the scenario for you, make sure to try the scrumptious “krasato” and “kreatopita” specialties at a seaside tavern accompanied by local Robola wine. As the sun begins to shadow it is almost time to attend the one of a kind liturgy at the holy metropolitan temple in Argostoli during which the island’s men choir will be singing the psalm of Kassiani. Following the liturgy a seaside walk under the star kissed sky will lift your spirit even higher.

This is a wonderful day to set off for an island excursion, visit the astonishing Myrtos beach situated only 10 km from Braunis Chorio, the picturesque village of Fiscardo (20 km), the mesmerizing Drogarati Cave and dare to dive into the emerald waters of Melissani Cave, visit the monastery of Agios Gerasimos and the famous Katavothres.

Holy Thursday

Day 5-

Good Friday

On Good Friday you can visit many of the island’s churches and monasteries and marvel the epitaphs, the symbolic biers of Christ that have been adorned with flowers by the women and daughters of the island.
