stay near the capital town of Zakynthos and discover St Dionysios Cathedral, enjoy the views from Bohali hill and learn about Byzantine history at the local Byzantine Museum of Zante

Zakynthos (Zante), known as “the Flower of the Levante” is the largest island in the Ionian group. Depart the port and drive to the Bohali lookout point, situated on top of Castle Hill, where you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of Zante town. From here, drive inland where you will have a pleasant sightseeing tour around the island before visiting the Saint Dionisios Cathedral, the patron saint of Zante, which is considered to be one of the holiest places in Greece. See the interior of this important cathedral, beautifully decorated and marvel at the carved silver urn of the saint. Afterwards, drive to the center of the town where you will have a guided walking tour, visiting the centrally located Byzantine Museum which houses unique icons from the past centuries. The museum’s rich collection of portable icons gives a very informative panorama of the local tradition in ecclesiastical paintings, with works dating back to the Byzantine times until the 19th century as well as approximately one thousand post-Byzantine works in the Ionian and Zakynthian styles.
