Before hiking, we will take a short tour of the village and drink our first coffee in the square under the shadow of the imposing plane tree. The route is easy and lasts about one and a half hour. We will have the opportunity to take some photographs and eventually we will reach to mitato, the house of the shepherd. Aphrodite, his wife, will welcome us. The scenery is breathtaking and the view is unique.
