Berlitz Pocket Guide Zákynthos & Kefaloniá is a concise, full-colour travel guide that gives you reliable, user-friendly detail along with vivid photography to uncover these neighbouring islands. Zákynthos is lush and green, and known for its much photographed Shipwreck Bay, remnants of Venetian-influenced architecture, and Greece's first National Marine Park - the most important loggerhead turtle nesting rookery in the Mediterranean. Kefaloniá is more rugged and mountainous, but equally surrounded by crystal clear waters, its beautiful landscapes now famous as the film locations for Captain Corelli's Mandolin.
To inspire you, the book offers a rundown of Zákynthos and Kefaloniá's Top 10 Attractions, followed by an itinerary for a Perfect Tour. The What to Do chapter is a snapshot of ways to spend your spare time, from nightlife and shopping to sports. Handy maps on the cover flaps help you get around.
The book provides all the essential background information, including an overview of the histories of Zákynthos and Kefaloniá, and ideas for an excursion to the nearby island of Itháki. There are carefully chosen listings of the best hotels and restaurants and an A-Z of all the practical information you'll need.
