There are several interesting churches worth visiting within the settlements of the villages of Gerakario. Moreover, as the village of Gerakario is situated in the centre of the island, it is a good base for excursions all over the island.

If you feel like staying in a peaceful and scenic environment, several accommodation options are available in the village.

You may find some good hotels, studios and rooms to let, both in the three settlements of the village and in areas closer to the sea. There is even a camp site option in Messo Gerakario for a really back to nature Zante holiday experience.

The view from Ano Gerakario is really stunning, looking down over most of Zante towards the floating turtle island of Marathonisi in the Bay of Laganas far in the distance.
