Strada Marina

Starting at Zakynthos Port on the Argasi side by the church and bell tower of Agios Dionysios take a slow walk on the sea front, also known as Strada Marina, and enjoy the beautiful scenes of fishermen and sailing boats, local shops, cafeterias and horse-drawn carriage tours. The walk will bring you to the big square of Dionysios Solomos (in front of the Byzantine Museum) which hosts the poet’s statue in honour of his ‘Hymn to Freedom’, which later became Greece’s national anthem.  The square is surrounded by local sweet sellers and play activities for the young visitors. During the summer months there is also a local outdoor book exhibition. Whilst at the square you can also visit St Nicolas church and the cultural centre which hosts regular guest art exhibitions.
