Swim stop before our departure to Kioni Village
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.
