Short trip to Zakynthos, among ancient sailing ships and a crystal-clear sea

Your stay in Zakynthos will be punctuated by long relaxing baths and excursions to discover this wonderful island. Admire the grand palaces that dot the historic center of Zakynthos and descend towards the picturesque harbor to visit the church of Saint Dionysios, before immersing yourself in the art of the Byzantine Museum. For a bit of relaxation overlooking the sea, nothing better than the village of Kalamaki, while for a breathtaking view we suggest Bochali, a traditional village perched on top of a hill and protected by a Venetian castle.
