Excursion details - Simply Zante

This award-winning trip rolls out the best bits of Zante in one day. Travelling by coach through olive groves and rolling hills, you’ll start at Katastari, soaking up the views across to Kefalonia and mainland Greece. Then onto a boat to cruise around the famous Blue Caves. Carved into cliffs along Zante’s northern coast, the star of these caves is the ‘Blue Grotto’, which is named after its dazzling blue waters. After that, it’s on to the village of Volimes for some souvenir shopping before making your way to the monastery at Anafonitria. Here you can admire the many frescoes on the walls of the half-ruined 14th century monastery which was once a refuge for Zante’s patron saint, St. Dionysios. After lunch in Anafonitria village, we’ll drive to an olive oil factory in Lithakia to sample some of the island’s golden nectar before heading to Macheirado to see its church - famous for its Venetian belfry. Lastly, you’ll call at the hillside of Bochali which gives fantastic views over Zante Town.
