Escorted Rail Tours to Kefalonia
The largest of the Ionian islands
Stretching out from the rugged, towering mountain range in its centre, Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands, boasting a long and rich history. Remains relating to Greek royal burials from thousands of years ago have been discovered on the island, suggesting that it was one of the country's important centres as far back as the Palaeolithic Era. There have also been discoveries of unclassified Roman ruins, implying that there were Roman settlers here between the 4th and 2nd centuries BC.
