Then you travel to Cephalonia. Cephalonia is known for its turtles, the Melissani lake and picturesque towns such as Assos and Fiskardo. Cephalonia has also been the location for the movie Captain's Corelli's Mandolin with Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz. You end your trip on Ithaca, the birthplace of Odyseus. It's a quiet island with beautiful bays and peaceful villages.
