Zakynthos (city) Yuriy Buriak

It is a standard Greek island town, with a promenade, hotels, restaurants and a port. The island itself is small, so you can spend the night here and travel by car or by bus. By car it will take no more than 1 hour to the farthest point. There is also a bus network, but the schedule is constantly changing, so better check at the bus station here N 37 46.894 E 20 53.580.

Be sure to visit the Bochali View Point (N 37 47.432 E 20 53.672). This is the perfect place to meet the sunrise. If you are traveling by car, then keep in mind that there is one-way traffic and the streets are narrow.
