Morning walk to Apikia descending via old mule tracks through the valley. Ferry to Tinos Island
This morning we take a circular walk on a paved path to Apikia where we can see the village's well shaped like a lions head and numerous natural springs. We descend through the valley on ancient, walled mule tracks. Walking back into Chora, you could stop for a swim at Nimborio Beach. The afternoon is free to enjoy a last stroll through the alleys of Chora and sit for a hot meal at a local restaurant.
Later we travel by public bus to the port at Gavrio and take the late afternoon ferry to Tinos Island, the crossing is approximately one-and-a-half hours. Tinos is a wild and beautiful island with lush green valleys, hidden beaches and over 60 sleepy, picturesque villages. The island is famed for the Church of Panagia Evangelistria, an important site for Greek pilgrims visiting its sacred icon of the Virgin Mary, found where the church now stands.
Today's eight-and-a-half kilometre walk is expected to take approximately four hours with a total ascent and descent of 400 metres. Stay: Agali Bay Hotel (Comfortable) (B)
