Getting to Zante
Where is Zante? Located off the north-west coast of Greece, Zante is one of the Ionian group of islands that include Corfu, Kefalonia and Lefkas. It is a relatively easy island to reach with its own airport which, as well as the usual charter flights from Europe, takes daily domestic flights from Athens and from Corfu, Kefalonia and Thessaloniki.
Zante also has ferry connections to Patras and Kilini on the Greece mainland as well as a boat service to Kephalonia but not much else.
Roads are good and there are daily KTEL bus services from Zante to Patras and to Athens on the mainland. Other direct bus routes from Zante go to Nafpaktos, Larissa and even as far as Thessaloniki.
Zante has good accommodation all over the island, although most hotels and apartments in the more popular resorts may be booked well inadvance by tour operators.
