Experience Greece: Ionian Isles

7_IYC_yacht_charter_Croatia_corfu

DAY 1 - CORFU

Often a destination in its own right, your charter yacht will start at the island of Corfu, where you will see the overlapping Venetian and Byzantine cultures. The medieval castles and imperial fortresses were built to withstand the might of the Ottoman Empire, and remain an impressive sight today. Experience the famous nightlife, or for a quieter day, relax on the beach at Syvota or further south Paxos. At the charming port of Gaios, enjoy the cafes and explore the sea caves at the Grotto of Ipapantis.

DAY 5 - ITHACA

Well known in Greek mythology as the birthplace of Odysseus, Ithaca is a mountainous island in the Ionian Sea. Surrounded by beautiful beaches, you may stop along the way – Afales Beach is a favourite for a dip in the sparkling waters and a picnic on the sand. Continue to the capital Vathi to absorb the spectacular views of the harbour, or stop to visit Taxiarchon where you can see a typical medieval Greek monastery.

DAY 6 - KEFALONIA

The largest of the Ionian Islands, Kefalonia was made famous as the setting for Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Many of the pebbled coves and beaches of Kefalonia are only accessible by foot making it a perfect destination for charterers. In the morning visit the Cave of the Nymphs. Some exploring may find you a souvenir as it is said Odysseus hid his gifts here. In the afternoon visit Odysseus’s castle by taxi, and be sure to sample some olive oil from one of the local groves.

DAY 7 - ZAKYNTHOS

For the final day, you’ll journey to Zakynthos, called the “perfumed isle” for its aromatic flowers. The King of Troy built a city here, and in Greek mythology it was conquered by Odysseus himself. As you depart, visit the beautiful turquoise waters of Navigo beach, and enjoy some time on the beach in the shadow of the rusting wreck of the smuggling ship, the Zante.
