Ithaki Winter Specials 2012 - 2013
So what could be so special in regard to what happens in Winter on Ithaca? Well, it's the time of year when the island is green and lush, when the traditions rarely seen in Summer are the 'every day' occurences. Its the life behind the tourism facade. Winter is also the time of the New Year celebrations, Carnival and Easter festivities and so many more annual events, religious and patriotic, that Greece holds so close to its bossom.
Here you will find the photographs and news of many of these occasions which take place through Winter 2012 and 2013.
