The Venetians – who owned it for 600 years – called it ’the Flower of the East.’ Zakynthos is still one of the lushest and loveliest Greek islands, with green hillsides covered with flowers in spring and early summer, white cliffs dropping to dazzling turquoise waters, and some of the best beaches in Greece. Even better, it claims to have more sun than any other Greek island – and it has sizzling nightlife to match.
