Ithaca Holidays

Ithaca Holidays – Relax in Odysseus’ back yard

Renowned since antiquity as the hero’s home in Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, Ithaca is a unique island, ideal for quiet family holidays. Set in the azure Ionian Sea, it rises abruptly to craggy heights, thus offering great mountain walking, as well as swimming. It does not have lengthy strands but you can enjoy dips at small coves, many of them accessible only by boat.

You can enter the world of mythology by exploring several Homeric sites, relax by the quayside of the scenically located capital Vathy and choose from a fine selection of waterside tavernas there or in villages like Kioni for a romantic meal.
