Central Greece natural bliss
Delphi-Galaxidi – Mount Parnassus
Τhe center of the world according to ancient Greeks. A holy place of global interest with impressive antiquities. Very close is the picturesque Galaxidi, a small seaside town with traditional architecture and the home of many famous Greek navigators. It is so beautiful, that it has become the filming location of many TV shows and films. Mount Parnassus is one of the largest in the country and hosts the most cosmopolitan ski resort in Greece in a very short distance from the picturesque town of Arachova.
Karpenisi – Velouxi
Surrounded by wonderful scenery, traditional villages and hiking paths, Karpenisi is everything you could ask for in an alpine escape. On the slopes of the ski resort in Velouhi, families and friends ski, snowboard and play games in the snow. Meanwhile, in the monastery of Panagia Prousiotissa, believers bow to the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary. And in the town of Karpenisi itself, you will enjoy lively evenings with generous helpings of food and entertainment in tavernas.
Only two hours away from Athens, 150km to the North, is Kamena Vourla, a beautiful seaside town, renowned for its thermal springs, green mountains and peaceful atmosphere.
Greek Seychelles, known as Lichadonisia, are only 10 minutes away by boat, promising an unforgettable experience.
Volos – Pelion
Volos was once ancient Iolkos, the city of the Argonauts. A welcoming and charming city at the foot of Mt Pelion, it embraces the Pagasitic Gulf. Its culinary traditions will be the star of the show, especially the flavours in the Tsipouradika, the restaurants serving the local firewater and meze. Old-fashioned neighbourhoods are juxtaposed against the youthful energy of students enjoying the pastry shops and cafes or just strolling around. The industrial buildings, museums, shops and exhibition spaces all add to the atmosphere, but the standout attraction is the waterfront.
