Day 3

Roman Trail

Transfer to what Lawrence Durrell called ‘the most beautiful view in Europe’, with fabulous vistas over Paleokastritsa and to the Byzantine Castle of the Angels. We follow a Roman footpath through olive groves to a medieval village before meandering down to a beautiful sandy beach of St Georges for lunch at a waterfront taverna ( at own cost)

Day 5

Donkey Sea Trail

Beginning in the medieval village of Giannades we head over undulating trails with rapidly changing scenery to hidden Liapades. Here time stands still with tall Venetian manor houses and narrow cobbled lanes. Our second part of the walk will be between secluded coves where a small boat will pick us up for an amazing cruise in the waters around Palekastritsa where we can stop for lunch (at own expense).

From Old Perithia – a semi-ruined Byzantine village located in a high valley – we start climbing and descending mule tracks and footpaths, through an oak forest gorge, to the olive groves and on to the sea with a couple of tavernas for a swim and lunch (at own cost). We’ll then travel onwards, along a spectacular footpath, to the Bay and Lagoon of St. Spiridon.
