Ithaka Experience is an excursion to Ithaka starting from Kefalonia by boat
(Every Wednesday & Sunday) – Pick up from: Agìa Efimia – Karavomilos – Sami to Ithaka (at 07:30 am)
Why not take the opportunity and join us as we sail across to visit our neighboring island of Ithaca; famous for its unspoiled traditional island villages, charming picturesque fishing ports and breathtaking natural beauty.
Together we will visit the capital of the island Vathy, where you can join the locals drinking a coffee at the main square and chatting with them, explore the quaint narrow streets (try to get lost!!!) or visit the local museum. As the home of the Greek King, Odysseus, Ithaca is stepped in Greek mythology ready for you to discover!
At the highest point of the island sits Kathara Monastery, which provides the perfect setting for you to take incredible photographs of the whole island, before we head down to the idyllic town of Stavros; a typical island village where you can truly appreciate the local charm of this amazing island, where it appears that time stood still. Some of the sights in Stavros are the beautiful church of Sotiras which stands in the central square of the village and the archaeological museum.
Lunch will be enjoyed in the harbor side town Κioni. Here you will be met with a wonderful choice of traditional taverns where you can lunch next to the sea.
If seeing a place gives you a better understanding of what you have read for it, it is clear why Ithaca, a rough and poor land surrounded by magic and playful coves, gave birth to the brilliant, resourceful, ingenious Odysseus.
