Lonely Planet review
There's a lot of hype about the sites connected to Homer's tale, and finding them can be an epic journey (signage is scant). The most renowned site is the Fountain of Arethousa, south of Vathy, where Odysseus' swineherd, Eumaeus, brought his pigs to drink. The isolated, shadeless trek, through unspoilt landscape with great sea views, takes around 3hr return.
