It takes only one and a half hour with the ferryboat to cross the 18 nautical miles from the port of Kyllini to the beautiful island of Zakynthos. If you have the time, don’t hesitate to jump on one of the five ships that leave the port of Kyllini daily during winter –seven during summertime- to visit this wonderful destination. Deep forests, fabulous beaches with amazing turquoise waters, special openhearted people, colourful villages with paved streets and Italian architecture are only a few of the reasons to indulge to this trip.
The magnificent sights, amazing beaches, rich cultural heritage, great monuments, mountains, castles, remote monasteries and cheerful, hospitable people are the treasures making Kefalonia one of the most attractive destinations. It is the biggest island of the Ionian Sea, at the outlet of Patraikos Bay, between Zante and Lefkada. The island has a splendid natural beauty and a diversified geological structure with innumerable small bays and rich vegetation; the mountain Aenos (National Park since 1962 supporting rich flora and fauna) looks impressive from far away.
The movie ‘’Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’’ shot in the natural scenery of the island refers to a history of the Resistance movement.
