We start with this beautiful trail that goes along with a small river in a gorge, under the shade of the cypress trees and the holy oaks. We will have the chance to see the ruins of old water mills and a stone bridge and enjoy the lush green nature and the wild flowers. Then, we head off to the ancient acropolis of Sami having great views of the surrounding mountains and villages. We see a few ruins of old Katapodata village. At the Acropolis you can see parts of the walls of the fortress, Agioi Fanentes church, cisterns and traces of towers and cells of monks. We take the trail down through the pine forest, to finish our hike in the town of Sami.
