The Ionian lifestyle has been influenced by the island's former rulers, including the British, French and Venetians, as well as by the characters from Homer's Greece; the ferries run to Corfu out of Venice as well as Athens, and the time tables have an archaic look of having been influenced by too many hands - a look that the islands themselves seem to have escaped. The islands blend their style: offering cricket on one, Parisian boulevards on another, and Hellenic and Byzantine ruins on a third, but the ferry links are less seamless; it's tricky to get between the northern and southern islands, but there's a service between Kefalonia and Zakynthos, and Corfu and Paxi, and the southern islands of Ithaca, Lefkada and Kefalonia have a good service between them.
