1. From Kioni: Ithaca Island Monastery & City Walking Day Tour
Together we will visit the capital of the island Vathy, where you can join the locals to take coffee at the main square, explore the quaint narrow streets 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 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 harbour side town Κioni. Here you will be met with a wonderful choice of traditional taverns where you can have lunch next to the sea. Seeing the place gives you a better understanding of what you have read about it, it is clear why Ithaca, a rough and rugged land surrounded by magic and colourful coves, gave birth to the brilliant, resourceful, ingenious Odysseus.
