Renting a boat in Ithaca

Ithaca is a small Greek island located in the Ionian Sea, off the northeast coast of the island of Kefalonia. According to Greek mythology, Ithaca is the home of Odysseus, a legendary hero who was the king of the island during the Trojan War. Ithaca has a long and rich history, dating back to ancient times. The island was inhabited by the Cephallenians, an ancient Greek tribe, and was later conquered by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians, and the Ottoman Turks.

Today, Ithaca is a popular destination for tourists who are drawn to its natural beauty, crystal-clear waters and rich archaeological sites. Visitors can explore the island's many beaches, picturesque villages, and ancient ruins, including the Cave of the Nymphs, which is said to be the spot where Odysseus met the nymphs during his journey home.
