1.Myths and Legends of ZANTE TOWN

The capital of the island often referred to as “Hora” by the locals was rebuilt in 1955 after the devastating earthquakes of 53'. The town is an amazing labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys, squares and neighborhoods, each one with its own fascinating history.

We begin our tour in Bochali, one of the town's prettiest suburbs where you can admire the stunning view of the town.

If history is your main interest, we may walk up to the Venetian Fortress , built on the site of an ancient Acropolis. Within the fortress walls was Terra the medieval town of Zante abandoned by its inhabitants when colonization of the foreshore began in the 16th and 17th century and stones and other masonry materials were transported to build the new town.

On our way into town we may stop at Strani Hill, an inspiring site where the words of the national anthem were composed by Dionisios Solomos (close friend and contemporary of Lord Byron). Also located on Strani Hill, the Razi Perfumery, with a rich local tradition in creating perfume compositions from the island's unique flowers.

Descending into Zante town , a stop at the church of St George , meeting place of the“ Society of Friends “ , a secret organization whose purpose was to overthrow the Ottoman rule of Greece in the early 1800's.

Once in Zante town and begining in Solomos Square we may access local museums and churches (St.Nicholas, St Dionysios) while learning about the town's history as well as local festivals and celebrations.

Finally, time will be set aside for shopping (gold, shoes and clothes) and relaxing in one of the cafes or tavernas of Zante Town.

Alternatively, if shopping isn't your thing, we can experience the impressive Solomos Winery situated on the town outskirts.

4.Simply the best of Zakynthos

SEE THE ISLAND'S MOST MEMORABLE LANDMARKS

In order to avoid the crowds we drive directly up to Smuggler's or Shipwreck cove: perhaps one of the most famous beaches in the world certainly the most photographed beach in Greece. A vessel carrying contraband cigarettes mysteriously shipwrecked in 1982 resulted in the island's most visited landmark. Admire the panoramic view from the surrounding cliffs. The colour of the sea is unbelievable.

After stopping at a local monastery, we continue north along the rocky landscape. On to the lighthouse at Korithi where (optionally)boats can be taken to another famous natural attraction of the island “The Blue Caves”. Next the port village of St.Nikolaos, featuring an islet with palaiochristianic and venetian ruins. Mikro Nisi ( Little island) another islet along our drive has given it's name to a lovely picturesque settlement with beautiful turquoise waters awaiting to be discovered by us. Next stop is Makris Gialos(long Beach) with crystal clear deep waters and impressive scenery. Optionally a special treat awaits us at the Levante Brewery where you will have the oppurtunity to taste the varieties of the local brew. Leaving the mountainous part of the island we will visit some of the local villages known as the (Riza ). These villages cultivate the famous Zante currants (a small grape with great anti oxydant elements)which are harvested in August , dried under the sun and exported to the Uk, Holland and the US. At the Vertzageio folklore museum we will meet some of the locals and learn about their way of life.

On the road again heading towards Vasilikos, with its pine tree forests, olive groves and vineyards, we will visit some of the islands' most magnificent beaches such as Gerakas, St.Nicholas, Banana and Porto Zorro. Optionally we may visit a traditional olive oil press and taste some of the island's finest virgin olive oil.

Returning through Zante Town, if time permits, a stop will be made at the Solomos Winery(closes at 3pm) where we will indulge in the knowledge of the local wine making and grape varieties.
