Only a short distance from Kefalonia, Ithaka – also referred to as Ithaki – is mentioned as an inspired trip destination for those who want to vary their stay in Corfu, though what they will find on this rocky island is highly unlikely to look much like a sandy paradise. This is why tourists are advised to carefully consider their option of going to Ithaka, though, on the other hand, holidaymakers enthusiastic of discovering on their own the alleged traces of the grand Greek mythology in general, and the homeland of Odysseus in particular will be more than rewarded once they get to Ithaka. Indeed, Ithaka lacks good beaches and the only asset it is able to capitalize in view of thriving on tourism is represented by the claim that the island is the home of renowned Greek mythical hero. The few hotels and rooms for rent in the main village in Ithaka, namely, Vathi, are designed precisely to service the accommodation needs of tourists in search of mythical experiences.
