THREE DAYS TRIP

AMFIKLIA - 50 SHADES OF GREEN

We go cycling on Parnassus and Kallidromo, the mountains east and west of the Valley of Kifissos River, on a forest path which often hosts the Acropolis Rally. At an altitude of 1,350 meters there are lakes, streams and green plateaus creating a haven for herds of cattle which stare at us indifferently as we cycle past them. The view to Maliakos Gulf fascinates us from the picturesque village of Mendenitsa with the Venetian castle. Back in the valley, we visit the unique in Greece Bread Museum of Amfiklia and the Kifissos River with its sources at Agia Eleousa in Ano Polydroso while we indulge in the Hot Springs of Thermopylae and the dishes from Roumeli which lead us to a temporary exaggeration. The harmonious contrasts and beautiful landscapes charm the visitor who makes the promise to return.
