Cool place to see.

We rented a motorbike and drove up here during the day. It was really cool and well worth the trip. Bring water, it gets very hot. The view is amazing as well.

I never been before in a place like that that you can see a fully empty semi destroyed village. A walk around is really amazing and travels you back in time. Don't miss it!!

Fascinating vilage on the top of a hill. Abandoned in 1965 and now in ruins apart from buildings restored for a late night bar, and also the chapel and church. Mill stones still there. Great views.

Small, but pretty ltown, and there is a good bus service from Livadia .There are restaurants, and the views over the sea are spectacular. We only ate there once, but a walk around made us think we should have gone there more. There is, apprentlly, a beach where you can shed your clothing, can't remember the name, but then it... More

Nice old town. God taverna and a nice local store where you can buy every thing. Easy to take the local bus and you can walk back to Livardia Beach.

This typical greek village was abandoned in the 1970's due to shortage of water. It is now used at night as a discotheque with free bus service from the main village. Really cool!

Utterly fascinating, and it is quite a big village, but you need to be able to walk well and need more than sandals. You must take water. There is evidence that some of the broken down stone cottages are being revived. You can find shade in some buildings to rest and take lunch.

A short hike uphill from Livadia (20 - 40 min) is the deserted village Mikro Chorio, now inhabited by shy goats and birds. It is well wort a visit and a proper look around, just be careful with the lose stones. At night there is a bar that I unfortunately didn't have the energy to visit. A mini bus takes... More

fascinating history, which was complemented by the amazing story from the owner of the superb Mediterranean delights restaurant. Stelios and Effie (father and daughter team) mentioned Stelios used to live in the village as a child. His first 'life' memory was as a three year old, being given a tin of sweets by a Brittish soldier in 1944 in the... More
