Ithaca is not only one of the smallest islands in the Ionian Sea, but also one of the most beautiful. Right across Kefalonia, famous for historical and mythological reasons, Ithaca uniquely combines natural beauty and culture and therefore attracts travelers that seek something different and exceptional. Deep blue sea, green mountains and picturesque villages with tiny unbeaten beaches are not the only things that one will find in Ithaca. The island has also a tradition in cultural events. Its Theater and Music Festivals and the literary conventions that take place there from time to time, are widely known to the public and are especially loved by the Ithakisians, who embrace every new creative initiative. The “Ten images for Ithaca” competition is an on going successful event that does not seize to evolve, offering both to Ithaca and to its audience new stimulus and opportunities.
