Zante is a Greek Island which is situated just off the south-western coastline of mainland Greece. The ancient nation of Greece is one of the most continuously-inhabited countries on the planet, with a history spanning the course of millennia. Though obviously a fantastic choice of destination for history enthusiasts, Greece is one of the most versatile destinations in the world, with a world-class array of attractions to suit every taste imaginable!
Zante, in particular, has long been renowned as one of the most beautiful of the Greek Islands. Also known by the name Zakynthos locally, this picturesque destination was dubbed ‘the Flower of the Orient’ by the seafaring Venetians who occupied it during the 14th century. They were clearly dazzled by the pretty olive trees, fragrant lemon groves and dense wildflowers which carpet the island of Zante to this day! Zakynthos boasts all-natural sightseeing opportunities which include the Blue Caves and stunning Navagio Beach, the famous Shipwreck Beach of Zante – making it the ideal choice of destination for visitors on the hunt for rest and relaxation amidst serene surroundings.
