Ikaria, renowned since antiquity, is often referred at the epics of Homer. The island has traces from the Neolithic years and later on from the Byzantine years and the Romans. The island played a major role throughout the period of Greek history.
In the heart of Agios Kyrikos, the capital of Ikaria, you will find an Archaeological Museum with a rich collection of vessels, coins, amphorae and other items from the Classical period. An equally interesting collection can be viewed in the village of Kambos with findings from the excavations in the island. From there you can drive yourself to the village of Perdiki and see the Folklore Museum that depicts the agricultural life of Ikaria through hundreds of exhibits from the 17th century.
