Zakynthos Guide

The Greek island of Zakynthos is the third largest Ionian Island and is located in the Ionian Sea. Also called Zante, the island is around 20 km from the Greek mainland and around 15 km to the south of the island of Kefalonia. Navagio Beach is perhaps one of the most famous and popular landmarks on the island. The beach is actually a cove in the south west of the island, surrounded by high cliffs that can only be reached by boat, or parachute if you are brave enough! The beach takes its name from a shipwreck (MV Panagiotis) which sunk on the shore in around 1980. The ridge area from Anafonitria has a small observation deck which overlooks the shipwreck, and there is also a monastery nearby. The unique and stunning scenery around the beach make it a favourite location for BASE jumpers, and each year, in August, a major event in the BASE calendar is held at Navagio.

Zakynthos has two ports. The main port is located in the Zakynthos Town with the other in the village of Agios Nikolaos. From the main port there is a connection to the port of Kyllini, which is the usual route for arrivals to the island by sea from the mainland. From the port of Agios Nikolaos there is a connection to the port of Pesada on the island of Kefalonia .


Bari Guide

The Italian city and port of Bari lies on the Adriatic Sea coasty and is the capital of the Italian region of Puglia. The city is not particularly well known as a tourist destination although there are a few sights of interest and is conveniently located for visitors to use it as a base from which to explore the surrounding area. The city's historic centre is located on a headland that protrudes into the Adriatic Sea. Most of the archaeology in the city lies beneath the maze of narrow lanes in the Vecchia Bari quarter of the city which is famous for being confusing to visitors who frequently find themselves lost. Bari's most famous church is located between the sea and the Old Town, and is the 11th century Romanesque Basilica di San Nicola. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas and was built in order to house his remains, which still lie in the crypt. In the main part of the church there are several interesting sights including an elaborate stone canopy over the altar and an 11th century marble bishop's throne, known as the Cattedra di Elia.

From the port of Bari, ferries depart towards Durres, Igoumenista, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik.
