Lazareto, Cave of the Nymphs, Monastery of Katharon, Anogi, Exogi, Kioni, Right, Skinos, Afales - are just some of the entries in the travel log of the Ithaca’s visitor.
Every resident of Ithaca will be delighted to share the beauties of an island that, even if it did not associate its name with nostalgic travel, from the very beginnings of history, would do so comfortably today.
