    Small and quiet
    Maherado is generally a small and quiet village, except when groups of tourists come to cheer it up. No particular sights, just one of the regular villages of Zakynthos. However, go visit it because Greek villages in general are much different from villages in Britain, where I come from. I do not believe there is a hotel there, so just go for a meal in the square and wander across the nice houses.
