Hiking is the visitors’ favorite sport, but you can also do water sports such as rafting and canoe kayaking. There is a 7 hour hiking path to Zagorohoria for the adventurous. If you are not used in walking that long, a beautiful route by the river -starting from Konitsa‘ s bridge and ending at the Monastery of Stomio- is only 1.5 hours long. It accommodates just one monk who would be delighted to start a conversation with visitors as he is alone most of the time. Read more...
The Tatoi estate was the residence of Greece’s former royal family. Near Athens, the complex consists of old buildings such as the stables, mews and storage houses. The steps at the front of the palace lead to the old swimming pool and the tennis court yard.
The estate is open for visits from early in the morning until sunset. The area is ideal for walking, trekking, hiking, cycling and running. The Tatoi Friends Association offer organised tours leaving from Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens.
In the middle of the lake you will see a small peninsula with a tiny church built on it which is accessible by a narrow strip of land.
