Two Greek Jewels on List of Most Beautiful Small European Towns

Two small Greek towns recently were included on this year’s listing of the ”25 Most Beautiful Small Towns in Europe,” which is published by the acclaimed Conde Nast Traveler magazine.

The small village of Assos in Greece’s Cephalonia (Kefalonia) island in the Ionian Sea is characterized by the famous magazine as a ”charming, bloom-filled village” which is ”one of the most compelling reasons to visit the Greek Islands.”

Assos was founded during the Venetian rule of the region in the Middle Ages and it has served as the administrative capital of northern Cephalonia since 1593.

Congrats to Teresa, who is this week’s winner of the PeterGreenberg.com photo contest!

This photo was taken on the island of Kefalonia (or Cephalonia) in Greece while she was on vacation recently in May. This view looks down on the town of Fiskardo.

Someone else is getting confused. Not Fiskardo, it is a view of Assos.
