The legendary home of Odysseus, the Ionian island of Ithaca, Greece, is a relaxing place. Located 165 mi/265 km northwest of Athens, it offers good snorkeling, pleasant small villages (we like Kioni) and scenic bays (such as Vathy).

Be sure to see the Grotto of Nymphs, also called Marmarospilia. This cave is located west of Vathy, near the main highway. In summer, the island holds a music festival, and a cultural festival takes place in October.
