Come along and enjoy the ride!
The first inhabitant of the island was Prince Zakynthos, the son of King Dardanos of Troy, who arrived here between 1500 and 1600 B.C.
As with much of Greece and its islands, its history includes fascinating stories that blend mythology and fact.
It is said that it was here during the 6th century B.C. that silver currency was established. One of the more interesting relatable facts concerns the French Revolution in 1789. It was during this time that the Zakynthians brought the ideals of social equity and justice to the island. On July 4, 1797, the French democratic flag was raised on the castle of Zakynthos. Discrimination was abolished and schools for all children were established.
The island is on the small side and the terrain is beautiful, so a panoramic tour is the perfect idea here. Stops will be made along the way allowing you to see some remaining sites, as well as scenic views. In particular, we will visit Anafonitria village, where you will see the Monastery of the Virgin Hyperagathos and enjoy some local snacks.
