Impressive place to visit. Perfect example how impressive the architecture of ancient Greece was, easily imagine while seeing the size of processed stone blocks. But the most impresive are the hundreds of years old olive trees all around the place. The shapes given by the years is amazing. And again loats of goats all around as everywhere on the island:)

I really loved this place, the views are amongst the best on the island, it's an easy walk though not if you have mobility problems. Your mind will marvel at how they managed to cut the huge stone blocks and get them into place as they did. A little more interpretation would be good but you don' t see much of that on the island and there is one information board. Make sure you follow the paths boh left and right after you enter the 'gate'.

The ruins of ancient Sami (at it's peak between 800 and 500BC) is worth a visit even if it is just for the views. On a clear day you can see across Ithaca to Lefkas and to the mainland. Walk up to the ancient gate and marvel at the symmetry of the stones cut with only basic tools

A little tricky to get to (like a lot of places on the island) but don't let that put you off.... great views from here and unbelievable tranquility...

A no cost trip with superb views, interesting remains dating back over 2000 years, if you go expecting intact buildings and in depth guide / tour you will be disappointed, if you have an imagination and want to wander around an interesting site (Very quiet when we visited) then you may well find it rewarding as we did.
