The island of Zakynthos is named after Zakynthos the son of Arcadian King Dardanus.  Dyonisios Solomos was born on this island who wrote the Hymn to Freedom whose first two stanzas became the greek national anthem.  The Pindus Mountain influences the weather in Greece with the western side receiving more rainfall than the eastern side so it is always a good idea to check the weather forecasts before you book and any weather influences.
