Ithaca, Greece Overview
Ithaca lies east of the northwest coast of Kephalonia, from which it is separated by the Strait of Ithaca. It covers an area of 117.8 square kilometres (45.5 sq mi) and has approximately 100 kilometres (62 miles) of coastline. The island stretches in the north-south direction, in length of 23 km (14 miles) and maximum width of 6 km (4 miles). It consists of two parts, of about equal size, connected by narrow isthmus of Aetos (Eagle), just 600 metres (1,969 feet) wide. The two parts enclose large bay of Molos, whose southern branch is the harbor of Vathi, the capital and the largest settlement of the island. The second largest village is Stavros in the northern part.
Lazaretto Islet guards the harbor. The church of The Saviour and the remains of an old gaol sit on the island.

Ithaca is an island in the Ionian Sea, and one of its northern mountain villages is Exoghi, near where ruins have been found dating back a few thousand years.
