Welcome to Ithaca


The tiny island of Ithaca has a rich history, acting as a scenic backdrop for mythological epics like Homer's Odyssey. The mountainous interior hides pockets of cypresses, pines, and olive trees. Nowadays, the island is home to a number of traditional villages, with a few museums and beaches. Vathy, also known as Ithaki Town, is the largest town, where many of the island's roughly 3,000 inhabitants live. The town is a popular port for yachts and other small pleasure cruises inthe Ionian Islands, and has some good restaurants and shops.
