Tzia or Kea is in a short distance from Lavrio, the third port of Attiki. It has a network of footpaths with a total length of 36 km and it’s considered as an ideal place for those who love hiking and trekking! Recently, trekking and hikking tourism has been greatly developed, as Kea’s trails are marked as “Network Routes Cultural Interest”. The trails are breathtaking and walkers can pass through forests of oaks and admire the wonderful wild flowers, picturesque churches, and most of those trails end to small coves or to wonderful beaches . The 65% of the paths remain part of the network that connected the ancient city-states, but they are used for many centuries to serve the needs of communication and transport. Routes from Ioulida to Otzia or Ioulida to Karthaia are very easy and enjoyable and they will fascinate you.
