The Ionian Greek Islands ...
To the west of Epirus, Sterea Ellada, and the Peloponnese, a group of islands form the Ionian islands. These islands are in the Ionian Sea on the Italian side of Greece, with the exception of Kythira which is south of the eastern Peloponessos.
They are traditionally called the Seven Islands, but the group includes many smaller islands as well as the seven principal ones. The seven are, from north to south: Kerkyra (usually known as Corfu in English), Paxi (or Paxos), Lefkada (or Lefkas), Ithaki (or Ithaca), Kefallonia (Cephalonia), Zakynthos (Zante), and Kythira (sometimes known as Cerigo in English).
They are connected by ferry to the towns of Patras in the Peloponessos, and Corfu and Cefalonia are connected by ferries from Italy.
You can drive to Lefkada and there is a ferry from Killini on the Peloponessos to Cefalonia and Zakynthos. Kerkyra (Corfu), Kefalonia, Zakynthos and Kythira have airports.
The Ionian are the second most popular of all the Greek Islands and attract thousands of visitors every year.
