Begin your 10-minute scenic drive along the picturesque Fanari Road, where you will get a chance to take beautiful photos of gorgeous landscapes before reaching Katavothres. Here, get a chance to take one-of-a-kind photos of the famous sinkholes, which pull in the seawater underground and release it at the other side of the island in Melissani Cave. After stopping for an impromptu photoshoot at Katavothres, hop back in your comfortable vehicle for another scenic drive that takes you past the villages of Livatho.

Your scenic day tour continues with a stop at the famous Robola Winery in the Omala Valley, known for its wine production. Sitting nearly 2,300 feet above sea level, the Omala Valley enjoys perfect weather conditions for growing grapes. The Castle of St. George offers the ideal backdrop for this picturesque winery. At your next stop, admire the majestic architecture of the Monastery of St. Gerasimos that sits underneath Mount Ainos' slopes. Then, hop back in your vehicle for another scenic drive with bay views and admire the two-story whitewashed half-residence, half-shop buildings that dot the harbor-side port town of Sami.

Continue your tour to the picturesque tiny village of Karavomilos, where you'll catch stunning views of the historic island of Ithaca and local wildlife like herons, ducks, and swans. Next, make your way to Agia Efimia, where you can admire the red-tiled houses and traditional Greek waterside tavernas, boutiques, and cafes that dot this beautiful fishing village. Wrap up your tour with a trip up to the hilltop of Myrtos Bay, an area known to have some of the world's most beautiful beaches.
