An Ionian Odyssey - Walking on Cephalonia & Ithaca

Varied and dramatic, Cephalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands, while neighbouring Ithaca is much smaller, but possesses an air of mystery that is enhanced by its links to Odysseus. Our routes convey the variety and palpable sense of history, revealing ancient sites, Venetian fortifications, picturesque fishing villages, inviting white-sand beaches and spots evoking Homeric legend, all against a vivid green backdrop.
