Amazing panoramic views from the top. Steep climb up but there is a train that can take you most of the way. €4 to enter, cafes & tavernas at the top for refreshments. Well worth it.

I never realised there was a castle overlooking Zakynthos town. We took the Fun Train from Kalamaki to Zakythos town to visit Bohali Castle. It is a pretty steep walk from the drop-off point to the castle. My recommendation is to wear sensible footwear as...More

Since we took wrong on the time and days I doubt I am the one who answer the openinh hours. But I'd believe you can take that in, in a smaller bag or something. I took my camerabag in and there were no problems.

I think the other answers have this covered but I would echo what they have said. If I were coming from the town then I would probably take a taxi there, or enjoy the lovely walk up through the trees (if you can find the... More
