The legendary homeland of Odysseus, Ithaca is a gentle island of lush contours and emerald coves. Bring the Greek myths to life at the Cave of the Nymphs, Arethoussa spring, and Homer's school. Putter around the island in a motorboat, go snorkelling in search of an underwater shipwreck, or simply kick back and let this peaceful island work its magic.
