Day 3

The Roman Way from Liapades to Agios Georgios (CT-07)

The walk starts with a sharply ascending footpath which immediately brings you high above sea level towards Paleokastritsa. You quickly cross the main road and head into the hills again, using a network of lovely cobbled footpaths. A climb of about an hour takes you to the centuries old village of Lakones and Bella Vista Viewpoint ('the best view in Europe').
One kilometre of unavoidable and sometimes busy road here, to cross the village, but the spectacular views make up for it! The Trail then heads across olive groves to Krini (from here you can opt to visit the Byzantine castle Angelokastro), through 'Lily Valley' and on down one of Greece's most remarkable footpaths, the Roman Way, which zigzags down a sheer cliff. The way continues down an olive grove track and along the seashore to the resort of Agios Georgios.

walking time/distance: 4h30’ / 13.5km (Angelokastro: +1km one way)
ascent/descent: 350m (Angelokastro: +150m)

From Agios Georgios it’s a steep climb up to the beautiful village of Afionas, with its olive oil shops, narrow alleys and beautiful views. On a footpath, you descend steeply towards the sea below, where the peninsula is so thin that you can choose on which side to swim! The path continues a bit further up the peninsula to the chapel-like cave of Agios Stylianos.
You return by a direct footpath and road from Afionas’ village back to Agios Georgios.
