Zakynthos: 4 Hour Scenic Walking Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 4 hours
Arrive at the convenient meeting point (Authority Port Zakynthos) in the morning to begin your excursion. Sail north to Xigia Sulfur Beach, dive into its blue waters, and have some time to enjoy this unique spot. Reach the blue caves and swim in the famous waters of the Ionian Sea. Enjoy one of the most spectacular natural spots on the island. Setting sail once again, cross the whole northern part of the island to find one of the most beautiful and photographed places in Greece: Navagio Beach and its shipwreck. Admire the stunning view and go swimming or snorkeling. Dock back at the port of Zakynthos on your way back and enjoy a transfer back to your hotel.
The tour begins with pickup from Zakynthos’ Central Bus Station and heads towards a haunted estate surrounded by luscious gardens. Upon arrival, stroll around the gardens and admire the tall cypresses, fragrant fig trees, and abundance of wild flowers. From here, follow your guide as you meander through rolling olive groves and over quiet roads to Strani Hill. Take a moment to rest on the hill and hear the story of the local poet, Dionysios Solomos, who wrote the national anthem at this spot. Continue the tour towards the Venetian Caste that resides above Zakynthos Town. After some time exploring the castle, walk along the path down into the bustling town and visit a selection of hidden gems that only the locals know about. The final stop of the tour is at the Orthodox Church of Saint Dionysios, where you can marvel at the impressive golden interior before saying farewell to your guide...
