Ithaka

Description

The Home of Famous Odysseus

“As you set out for Ithaka… “, wrote the great Greek poet Constantine Cavafy, making the island the synonym for striving for a particular goal. This green island can become your favorite place, your dream destination. Worldwide famous as the home of Odysseus, Ithaca symbolizes the return to the haven, the discovery and the fulfillment.

Red-Roofed Vathy

Being a small picturesque town with beautiful houses with red tiled roofs and colorful windows, the town of Vathy is the capital and the main port of the island. It lies deep inside the charming Molos Gulf with the lace-like coast, sheltering a small islet of Lazaretto with two Venetian fortresses atop. In the summer season, the town's population increases by 50 percent. The whole town can be called the landmark of the island thanks to its old Ionian architectural style.
