 Paxi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paxi (Greek: Παξοί, Paksi) formerly known as "Paxos" and sometimes pronounced "Paxoi" (wrongly - the diphtong disappeared from Greek a long time ago), is the smallest of the Ionian Islands (the Heptanese).
In fact in Greek it is a plural form and it refers to a complex of islands, the largest of which are Paxi and Antipaxi (a smaller nearby island famous for its wine, which is unfortunately almost impossible to purchase in shops or tavernas, and two of the finest sandy beaches in the Ionian Sea).
In 1864, together with the rest of the Heptanese, Paxi was ceded to the Greek state.

Paxi may be small but it's neither possible nor wise to do it in one day.
