    Rating: Moderate

    A pleasantly walk for young and old. Our walk begins at Gastouri Village and progresses towards Agia Kyriaki chapel. The village of Gastouri is set amid beautiful scenery on a green hillside. The village was built on the slopes of the mountain Agioi Deka and it has points of unique view, like Bella Vista and Belvedere.
    The picturesque village chosen by the Emperess of Aystria, Sissy, to find peace and the appropriate climate  that would be beneficial for her damaged health.
    We walk through the tiled streets with the stone mansions. 
    On the way you will meet the house where  the Emperess Sissy  lived.  Later we will meet the Sissy's Springs.
    Finally we will reach the highest top of the mountain where the views are stunning.
    You will be spellbound by stupendous views over rural villages, fertile terraces, vineyards and the different hues of the Ionian Sea.
    The walks ends back at Gastouri where you will have the chance to visit Achilleion Palace.
