Kalavrita Ski Center28-01-2015 13:46The ski resort in Kalavrita is the second largest in the country and one of the most popular reference points for snow-sports in the Peloponnese. It is a mere 77km from Patras and approximately 200km from Athens.
It is located 14km from the town of Kalavrita, on Mount Chelmos in the area of Vathia Lakka at an altitude ranging from 1650m to 2340m facing northwest. It is easy to get to and has well-planned lifts and ski runs varying in degrees of difficulty for skiers of all levels.
More specifically, it has 12 runs varying in difficulty with an adequate amount of snow and sign-posting covering a total distance of 20km.
Skiers can get to the slopes by means of three lifts. Stiga is the longest slope in Greece and its level of difficulty makes the experienced skier soar.

The Marmita Restaurant is now a part of the history of Santorini, since it has been operating in Megalochori since 2004. From 2013 it s been running under the observation of new owner Giannis Manikas and the sense of renewal is obvious.
It opened in 2004 and soon became one of the favourite dining spots in Santorini. It is called Metaxy mas which means.. between us, but it is not a secret any more that this restaurant has a rich menu with almost 40 different dishes and appetizers based on traditional Greek cuisine.

Touristorama has been travelling all around Greece and its islands for over a decade.

Every time someone from Touristorama travels to the island of Santorini, he enjoys authentic Greek cuisine at the terrace of this restaurant in the heart of Fira. And we are not the only ones. Thousands of tourists include it among their favorites on the volcanic island.
Like a relay race of three generations; a journey with happy days, sad days, joys, sorrows, wars, Occupation, poverty, hunger, deaths, volcanic eruptions, catastrophic earthquakes, flee for a better life, return, better days, feasts, tourism explosion, financial crises and so on… Everything has been indelibly inscribed on the walls of this small building, Aktaion.
