  • We absolutely loved this place. One of the highlights of our month-long trip, but then it was of special interest, since our trip was also spent reading Homer's Odyssey out loud to our teens while tra...  more »
  • It makes no sense that this area is left to its fate, without intervention. It's the Palace of Odysseus or not (in the neighboring island they say no, but ... we expected), it is still an area of extreme interest, in place that takes your breath away, without explanation, without a sign purposes only, without any way of using it. To understand what are you looking at, you have to go to the center of the country, read the sign around a model, in the square, then take the car/motorcycle, exit the village, take a dirt road, Park possibly under an olive tree and inerpicarti, trying to remember everything you've read and riposrtarlo in context. Some areas excavated are even covered by sheets or plexiglass or fences ... robe! A place of incredible charm, which could be an asset to the place, left to the total neglect. And to think the trip to Ithaca, as I think most visitors during the day, we did it in the footsteps of Ulysses. The island is beautiful, for Christ's sake, but it's what cinha did say "Let's go there".

  • The legends around this place. Where was he, the famous square of Odysseus? Ithaca or Kefalonia or even on Lefkada? In this point is scientists don't agree. How exactly were the descriptions by Homer, who only 4 centuries wrote his epic for Odysseus. One theory is that the Palace stood on this site. No matter, whether it was or not, it's worth in any case, to visit the Schuledes Homer. There's always something to discover, what many centuries back is. And who that not interested in, the view from here is awesome.
