Ithaca is an island of western Greece in the Ionian Islands. According to tradition, it was the home of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's Odyssey. One of the seven Ionian islands, Ithaca is essentially two heavily wooded mountain tops rich in flora and fauna, which protrude steeply from the Ionian sea, joined in the centre of the island by a thin stretch of land.
