Description

The sights of Zakynthos offer you a full day's worth of historic elegance and natural beauty as a guide shows you around the island. This tour features the peaceful towns, ancient monasteries, and spectacular cliffs that surround you as you get to know this setting at the edge of the Ionian Sea.

After you're picked up from your hotel, head to the traditional village of Macherado to make your first stop. Visit the famous museum church of Agia Mavra and check out a factory that produces the island's famous olive oil, and then move on into the mountains that dominate the west of the island.

A ride past the mountain communities of Kiliomeno and Agios Leon brings you to the seaside village of Kampi, where you get a magnificent view over the sheer cliffs and the rippling waters of the sea. Move on to the community of Maries, where Mary Magdalene is said to have stopped to spread the word of Christianity while on her way to Rome.

Next, you can take a look out at the caves that lie scattered within the cliffs of the northern coast before you depart for Anafonitria, site of the famous monastery of Saint Dennis. Admire the recently restored 15th-century frescoes in the building where Zakynthos' patron saint served as an abbot until his death in 1624. You head back to your hotel after some free time in a traditional mountain village, where you can check out the produce on offer in the market.
