Kefalonia, Greece

Going down

to see

the underground lakes of Melissani in Kefalonia, Greece, where Captain Morellos' Mandolin was filmed. From here it's possible to take a boat ride over the supposedly bottomless depths, and marvel at the bizarre notion that it is fed by seawater which disappears into the ground at the Katavothres on the other side of Kefalonia.


  1. An interesting place and it looks
    like it would be a cool escape from
    the heat.

    Hope you have a relaxing weekend.!

  2. oh i am so there...i am all about adventures...great pics...

  3. I couldn't imagine where you were headed down that cave hall way. It is an unusual thing. I like all the color of the different boats.

  4. Hello Valerie,

    Lovely photos and very interesting write up.

    I was amazed to see the new look Valerie.With short hair and an enchanting smile.

    Best wishes,

  5. It looks so idyllic. Those little coves and caves are so interesting.

  7. I've been there Valerie, it's really beautiful isn't it? :)

  8. It sounds so interesting and looks so beautiful! You are a world-wide traveler!

  9. Nice, nice and super sweet, Val. Are you there to help bail out Greece since they are broke? Hope you are having a good time and enjoying yourself. Take care.
