Ionian Sea is an archipelago that sweeps down the west coast of Greece and there are standing the magnificent Ionian Islands. This Greek islands complex forms the sea boundary of Greece with Italy. Ionian Islands are also called Eptanisa in Greek. Eptanisa is coming from the word seven (“epta” in Greek) and the word islands (“nisia”in Greek) meaning seven islands.
The seven are, from north to south: Corfu, Paxoi, Lefkada, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Zakinthos and Kithira. There are also some smaller islands like: Antipaxi, Erikousa, Mathraki, Meganisi and Othoni as well as smaller uninhabited islands.
Each island boasts a distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture. Their dramatic landscapes and sunsets… Their iridescent, crystalline, tranquil, clear and electric-blue waters… and of course their exotic, white-golden and sandy shores… can definitely make a big impression to any traveler. Moreover, all those charming villages and stunning scenic countryside which is verdant and flourishing with greenery and nature can make your trip unforgettable.
