Ithaca, Greece - Off the Beaten Path
You could spend a lifetime exploring the many islands of Greece, and yet, a couple of these isles have stolen most of the attention in the eyes of travelers. Mykonos and Santorini are downright stunning, but other islands (in areas beyond the Cyclades) can compete with equally incredible beauty and food, along with much smaller crowds. When planning a recent trip to Greece, I had a few things in mind. I wanted an affordable, less crowded place where I would hear Greek spoken all around me (a rarity in touristy destinations like Santorini). I pictured isolated stretches of quiet beaches and fishing villages along the water with shady tables serving fresh cuisine. I wanted to skip the glitz and get off the grid...so I went to Ithaca.

Located west of the Peloponnese in the Ionian Islands, this 46-square mile island is best known for being the home of Odysseus, and the place he was trying to return to in Homer's The Odyssey. Beyond the classical Greek connection, there are many reasons to climb aboard a ferry, enjoy every quiet minute of the journey, and unwind over two-euro glasses of local white wine. This island is far - both in terms of distance and sensibility - from the Greek islands you may be used to.
