Located 5 kilometres south of Vathy at the far southeast corner of Ithaca is the Spring of Aretousa. This is the fabled spring where Odysseus' swineherder, Eumaeus, brought his pigs to drink.To get there on your way from Vathi to Marathias, you will find a blue sign saying “Arethousa Krini”. This is where the path to the spring begins.
