Zakynthos Town, historically known as The Venice of the South, is the island's modern capital and was nearly completely destroyed by an earthquake and fire on August 9, 1953. Afterwards, the town was rebuilt, taking care to preserve its original Venetian and Byzantine style wherever possible.

Tendering ashore, your coach awaits to transport you to Bohali Village, which is located below the Venetian fortress and offers incredible views of Zakynthos town and the surrounding areas for as far as the eye can see. This charming enclave enchants visitors with its quiet lanes, quaint houses with flowered courtyards and elegant tavernas. Enjoy a photo stop here before traveling on.

Your next stop is at the The Church of St. Mavra, located in the village of Maherado. It was built during the 14th century and is considered one of the most important and famous churches of the island. The church houses a remarkable collection of fine icons and frescoes painted by famous Greek artists.

Continuing on, you will make your way to Kampi, where the deepest point in the Mediterranean lies just off the dramatic cliffs found here. During your visit, you will be treated to some Greek Mezedes and a traditional folkloric show before it's time to return to the pier.

Please note: This tour consists of approximately 1-hour of moderate walking and is not available to wheelchair guests. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Comfortable, flat-heeled, closed-toe walking shoes, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are recommended.
