Delve into the magic and mythology of ancient Greece on a cruise to the shores of Ithaca, the home of Odysseus in Homer's ancient epic poem The Odyssey. Stop to swim at Gidaki Beach, shop in the capital of Cathi, and linger over lunch in the village of Kioni.

After you're picked up from your hotel, head down to the pier and step aboard a spacious boat for the cruise across the azure waters to Kefalonia's sister island, Ithaca. Hear the story of Odysseus, whose dramatic journey home to Ithaca is the plot of Homer's The Odyssey, and then pull ashore at Gidaki Beach to cool off with a swim or soak up the sun on the white sands.

From there, continue on to the capital of Ithaca, Vathi. Enjoy some free time to peruse the city's shops and boutiques for souvenirs or sit down for an iced coffee and some people-watching before the short sail to Kioni. With its crystal-clear harbor and smattering of traditional tavernas, it's the perfect spot to relax over lunch with a view before the return cruise to Kefalonia.
