Odysseus’ home and the end goal of his journey is the island of Ithaca. This is also where any scenes involving Penelope and the Suitors, and some with Telemachus, take place. Ithaca is a Greek island in the Ionian sea, east of Cephallonia, west of mainland Greece. During the Mycenaean period, it was the capital of the Cephallonian area.
