The Pelion Railway is located nearby Milies centre. You can walk by the side of the railways and explore tha amazing landscape. It is an excellent walk for families and couples, especially during spring.

Indeed easy to find at Ano Lechonia at the pharmacy on the traffic lights on the coast road. Free parking. Start at 10.00 in the morning. You can also take the train at 15.00 in Milies and drive down and take a taxi back.
