Trip to Amfilkeia

The conservation village of Amfikleia is 50 km from Arachova and is ideal for a day trip from your cosmopolitan base. It is characterized by its unique architecture, with stone back streets, traditional fountains and churches.

One of the attractions worthy of your attention is the Bread Museum (Amfikleia Main Square, Tuesday-Friday: 10.00-14.00, Saturday-Sunday: 10.00-16.00, tel. +30 22340 23044, http://www.breadmuseum.gr) and Kallidromou lake (also known as Nevropolou). On the Viotikos Kifissos river you can walk over the stone bridges, observe the flora and fauna along the banks and go canoeing.

Naturally, your excursion to Amfikleia would not be complete without a visit to the Parnassos National Park, since the village is located in its core. Here you can admire the customs of the Roumeli region which remain unaltered throughout the passing of time, like the traditional Christmas, the celebration of the Breeders and the special Carnival celebrations with the pyres.
