About Zante

Zakynthos, or in English Zante, is a Greek island, one of the seven islands belonging to the Ionian Islands or Heptanese group of islands.

Zante, similarly to the other Ionian Islands, was under Venetian occupation for over three centuries (1479 – 1797), while literature and arts have risen, leaving back a great heritage. While in Zante, there are many sights and historical places that are must-see, such as the Church of St. Dionyssios, the Church of St. Nikolaos Molos, the Venetian Bridge, the Venetian Castle, the Askos Stone Park, the Solomos Museum and many more.

Zante’s mountainous terrain comprises steep mountains and hills to the west of the island and grassy plain to the southeastern part. Due to the rough topography, the western part of Zante remains quite untouched, offering breathtaking views. When in Zante, there are some locations, such as Kalamaki, Tsilivi, Laganas and Vassilikos that you must visit. Other highlights include the Navagio Beach, the Blue Caves, the Roma Mansion, the Byzantine Museum and of course the town of Zante.

Zante’s economy is mainly based on tourism (63%), but agriculture remains a source of income for many locals. During your visit, you will notice that people in Zankynthos are friendly, warm-hearted and chatty! So, prepare yourselves for long conversations and a lot of singing. Yes, we forgot to mention that Zante has a long history of music tradition, and as you will notice, locals love to sing.
