What you'll do

Ithaca History Tours is one of the most amazing experiences you can experience on the island of Ithaca Greece.
We will travel to archaeological sites and visit important historic sites. More specifically, we will know Ithaca both from the archaeological data and from the Odyssey data. Our private excursions are designed to cover a wide range of historical routes. So, we have selected the most popular tourist attractions in Ithaca.
We start from Vathi and we board at Van.
We arrive at Stavros village and we begin the historical tour. There, you will admire the beautiful harbor of Polis and the cave of Loizos. We will talk about the life of Odysseus with the gifts of the Faiakes and the famous inscription ΕΥΧΗΝ ΟΔΥΣΣΕΙ.
We stop at Stavros Square to admire the bust of Odysseus. An illustration of his 10-year journey and a model of Odysseus’ palace from Bruno Mazzali.
We climb on the Pilikata hill, where the Early Helladic Settlement (3000 BC) was discovered. There, we see remnants from the wall of the settlement.
We visit the Archaeological Museum, where we see representative finds from the Early Helladic Settlement and tributes from the Holy Cave of the City.
We leave the hill and after a 30-minute hike. Then, we reach the Homer School, an archaeological site identified by the archaeologists with Odysseus’ palace.
