Zante Island Tourist Traps

    When taking a coach tour of the island, most probably it will take you to the village of Volimes. You can buy there lots of different hand made products such as carpets, crochet, honey, bags, olive oil etc.
    What we have found out (unfortunately after our trip and purchases there) is that the prices are sometimes not that reasonable that you might think. In your resort supermarket you can buy the same olive oil for cheaper. And it definitely is the SAME stuff.

    Unique Suggestions: ...the choice of the carpets may be much wider than in any resort store. Also leather products might be worth your trip. Enjoy the place and local people.

    Fun Alternatives: Check the prices in your local resort supermarket before you go on the trip. On the other hand you might feel ok even if you pay more but get the extra service in the village, people are nice and will talk to you.
