Bochali is located on a magnificent hill, right above Zakynthos town. Bochali is well known for its stunning panoramic views over the town of Zante and the Ionian Sea all along to the Peloponnese.
The famous Zakynthian poet Dionysios Solomos was inspired here to write his best known poem, which lyrics later became the National Anthem of Greece.
The Venetian Castle is also located in Bochali, which once was the capital town of the island. The district in general is great to walk around, while its old lanes along with the bougainvillea and jasmine flowers that cover many of the walls, will give you a nostalgic scent of the past days.
