If you’re looking to get inspired like the great poet who wrote a number of poems during his stay in Kefallonia, head to Lakythra village and find Lord Byron’s rock. The poet loved the view from this rock, which gave him vistas of the whole island and the Ionian and the locals honored him in a plaque dedicated to him.
