Athens, the national capital, is located roughly 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the east of Skillountia.
West Greece is firmly established on the tourist trail, which means getting from A to B is easy. Make sure you leave yourself sufficient time to experience the incredible range of attractions this region offers. Dimitsana and Lagadia are just two of the many other places worth seeing while you're in West Greece.
When you are ready to venture further afield why not visit the nearest regional center. Zakynthos is approximately 45 miles (72 kilometers) away and is home to visitor attractions such as Makris Gialos Beach, Agios Dhionysios and Solomos Square. Argassi Beach, Thematic Exhibition Center of Caretta Caretta and Shipwreck Beach are also good places to spend time.
For a window into the local culture, make a beeline for West Greece's theaters, history museums and art museums. This region has been graced with a rich spiritual history; learn more at the area's beautiful monasteries.
Make the most of the knowledge of the locals with your pick of winery tours, city walking tours and guided nature walks. For those who love the water, plan to enjoy some watersports. Sea kayaking is popular and another option is canoeing.
When it is time to leave Skillountia, use your last euros on last minute keepsakes and say Yiá sou (farewell).
