IONIAN ODYSSEY

LANDSCAPES, LITERATURE AND GARDENS OF THE IONIAN ISLANDS

Embark on a journey to the Ionian islands of Kefalonia, Ithaca, Paxos and Corfu, which abound with elegant gardens, stunning landscapes, historic castles and aristocratic villas.

In Kefalonia, visit a selection of private gardens and admire the crumbling remains of Venetian castles. On Ithaca, see the landscapes that inspired Homer and his modern Greek successor, the poet Constantine Cavafy.

Then continue to Corfu, Venice’s Mediaeval stronghold against the Ottomans. Later, British dominion added another layer to the local culture, and the result is an island that boasts exquisite villas, charming landscape gardens and impressive Venetian fortresses. Visit a selection of public and private gardens and spend time exploring the natural wilderness of Paxos.
