DiscoverMore

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.

Zakynthos

On the island of legend and poetry

The history of Zakynthos is inextricably linked to myth and poetry, having been the home of the goddess Venus and the famous poet Ugo Foscolo.

Don't miss the village of Alykes, famous for its salt pans, and the nightlife of Argasi, whose village is full of bars and clubs.
