Cruise from Agia Efimia to Kioni
Swim stop at the deep blue crystal waters of the coastline of the northern Ithaka
Kioni is picturesque traditional village of Ithaca. It was built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a mountain, with little tiled roofed white houses and a lovely little port where little fishing boats are quietly mooring. The village was finished by the people who used to live in the mountain village of Anogi, at the end of the 16th century. Very few houses survived the earthquake of 1953, but the few ones remaining are very interesting, with renaissance architectural characteristics.
Vathi - the capital
Free Time - Lunch(optional)
Vathi village is the largest village of Ithaca and has been the capital and main harbour of the island since the 16th century.
It is the biggest settlement on the island, built like as amphitheatre, a natural horseshoe harbour in the depth of a closed bay.
On the both side of the entrance of the port one can see the ruins of a fort built by the French 1807. as a protection from the powerful fleet of the English. In the middle of the port is a small island, which will attract your attention, called Lazaretto. There you can see the small church of the Saviour, which has been preserved and first built in 1668.
