After a lovely drive over to Sami Port we board a ferry boat and cruise across to Piso Aetos port on Ithaka. We see Vathi town for museums, shopping and churches. Then, it’s up to an area just above the town for photographs of Lazaretto Island and Vathi Bay. Following that, we meander up a mountain side to the Kathara monastery for astounding views of southern Ithaka. Lunch time is enjoyed in Kioni Bay.
A full program of photographs in Frikes, Rovani Dessert, the only bust of Odysseus in Stavros and history of Polis Bay finds us back at the ferry boat after a day of mythological splendor.
