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.
