Ionian Group


Levante Ferries, has made its entrance in the Greek shipping field quite recently. The company operates in the Ionian Sea, connecting Kyllini port (western Greece) with Zakynthos (or Zante). The company has named its vessel after the name given by the Venetians to the island of Zakynthos out of admiration for its beautiful landscapes: “Fior di Levante” which means the “Flower of the east”. The company runs up to four daily scheduled itineraries from Kyllini to Zakynthos and vice versa. 
“Fior di Levante” is equipped with two escalators and two elevators. The vessel is fully air-conditioned, and provides all passengers with satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, comfortable air type seats, a shop, bars, kennels and many more facilities. It takes one hour to travel from Kyllini to Zante. Kyllini port suits perfectly those arriving from Italy by boat. All itineraries which depart from Trieste, Ancona, Bari, and Venice, arrive in Patras (western Greece) which is quite close to Kyllini port (one hour approximately by car). Nevertheless, for those wishing to depart from Athens, It takes four hours to go to Kyllini (bus scheduled itineraries are available in case you have not rented a car).
