"Stavros" Ithaki Things to Do Tip by elsadran

Ithaki Things to Do: 20 reviews and 44 photos


Stavros is the main town of the north so a lot of action goes on here. It is found on the 16th kilometer from Vathy and it is one of the most important commercial centers of Ithaki.
The area is considered as the most probable site of the mythological home place of Ulysses. Many ruins of the period have been excavated as well as a mask with the inscription “Bless Odysseus” (Ulysses) in the nearby cave of Loizos.
There are rooms, restaurants and cafeterias around the pleasant square of the village. The festivities on 5&6 of August bring a lot of people from all over the island and there is a lot of fun.
The nearest beach is that of Polis beach just a short way down the road.
