In the heart of Greece, where breathtaking mountains meet gorgeous beaches and wild rivers flow into the peaceful sea, where nature meets civilization and ancient history finds the modern world… there lies the Region of Central Greece, a land of rich contradictions, intense excitements and unexpected experiences.
It is a place where someone can wander among legends, stroll into great history and eternity through its archaeological sites, achieve serenity and reflect upon the richness and depths of faith in its well-hidden religious treasures, come across its pure nature and experience its warm hospitality.
