A distance of about 10 km, so we approximate around 4 hours.The hike is easy and is mostly dirt roads and short a distance on trails that are easy to walk on.There are no steep hills and is more a walk than a hike. We recommend walking shoes for this hike.

This is a hike of about 7 km, but we approximate 4 hours .The walk is asphalt and gravel roads and shorter distances on trails that are easy to walk on. No steep hilsl or descents and a pair of comfortable walking shoes is recommended for this hike. Thermi is also actually three villages . The walk goes past the Prehistoric Settlement of Thermi.

We eat breakfast and collected 9 am after we checked out for a short ride to the Mytillini Centre. We start our walk at the statue of liberty in the harbor. This walk is 3 km so we approximate 2 hours.About half of the time is devoted to the Castle of Mytilene (which is one of the Mediterranean's largest) and the other half to the city where you get to see some historical sites from about 500 b.c., to the more modern southern port. The substrate is the streets of asphalt and cobblestone, so regular sneakers works very well.
Time will be provided for lunch on your own and look a bit in the shops before we gather at 2 pm. to travel a few kilometres to Olive woodhouse (on Tripadvisor) We will see great craftsmanship produced while having the possibility to buy a nice gift with home.
