Zakynthos Town is one of the beautiful Zante towns. It is known as Zakynthos Town, Zakinthos or Zante Town and is the capital and the main port of the beautiful Zakynthos Island. Zakinthos is another way to write the name of the town.

It is the cultural hub and the commercial centre of the Island of Zakynthos and it lies on the coast at the southeast covering 46 square kilometres in the interior of the island. There are more than 12,000 inhabitants in this capital.

The earthquake damaged Zakinthos in 1953, but the local authorities have managed to rebuilt it completely and restore most of its old buildings. It has neoclassical public buildings, wide arcaded streets and public squares, some of which are planted by palm trees and flowers.

The main square is Plateia Solomou or Dionysios Solomos' Square. It takes its name from the famous Greek poet Dionysios Solomos, the creator of the national anthem of Greece. Plateia obviously means square here. The second square is Saint Markos Square and the third is Plateia Dimokratias.

Two statues require mentioning in the first square, the statue of the poet and the Statue of Liberty. The second statue stands there since the 1960s to commemorate the independence of Greece in 1821 and there are bones, skulls and weapons of the Greek martyrs who died defending their country during the independence war.

Plateia Solomou is at the north of the ferry quay and at the back of Leoforos K. Lombardou, which runs beside the waterfrontand then takes the name of Leoforos Paraliaki when it turns east and then north. It is at the back of Leoforos Paraliaki.

Leoforos Paraliaki runs to the north and it takes the name of Dionysiou Roma (not to be confused with the main thoroughfare Alexandrou Roma) from this direction onwards.

Plateia Agiou Markou is at the northwest of Plateia Dimokratias. Just go ahead to the northwest passing Desylla and Leonida Zoi at your left. Plateia Dimokratias is at the north of Dionysios Solomos' square stretching until Desylla Street.

What makes Zakinthos one of the beautiful Zante towns is that the town is lively and naturally rich by beautiful views over the harbour, on the main squares and the main streets that are full of joy and happy people hitting their way to work at day and to enjoy at night.

There are some restaurants, cafes, bars, open by night supermarkets, shops, travel agencies, rooms, banks and bus station close to those squares and on the main streets of Lombardou, Dimokratis or Demokratias Avenue, Alexandrou Roma and Tertseti. Alexandrou Roma, the main street is the fourth street parallel to the seafront.

The first is Leoforos K. Lombardou, the second is Filita and the third is Foskolou. The National Bank of Greece is at the west of Plateia Solomou and the Commercial Bank is opposite of it. The tow banks have ATMs.

The Post Office of Greece is on Tertseti 27, one block west of Alexandrou Roma and the Hellenic Organization of Telecommunications (OTE) is on Dimokratis.

In addition to its main services, the OTE offers internet connection and it is open from early in the morning until midnight. The main travel agencies and tours are on Lombardou 78 and Lombardou 50.
