Choose from great, affordable accommodation in the center of town, varying from two, three and four star hotels, which have all the amenities on its doorstep.

Step away from the bustling city and into the crystal clear waters by the cobbled beach, just on the outskirts of the town in Kryoneri, or take a dip in the waters nearby Solomos Square.

Perhaps a trip to the museums; the Byzantine Museum boasts 17th Century paintings, the Cultural Centre which holds Zakynthos historical reports and a Library can all be found on Solomos Square. A popular activity around town is to hire bikes, jeeps and motorcycles for all ages, and spend the afternoon zipping around town checking out all the best excursions.
