Κτήριο αξιωματικών φρουράς

This walk will take place through the dense net of paths in and around Tatoi forest which leans at the east side of Mount Parnitha. There are not significant height differences ( max 100 m ). Paths are wide ( mostly on dirt roads ) and the duration will be 3 hours approximately, so the difficulty of this stroll is … medium !
Along the whole route we would have the opportunity to notice some remarkable buildings of the past regarding to the former King Family of Greece.
Meeting point is in front of the second Gate of the Park with the Greek name ‘‘ Pili Lefkas ’’, where a selfdrawing …parking exists on the left of the main road ( some places are only for 4×4 cars ! ).
To reach the meeting point, as you approach Varibopi suburb either from Kifissia or from Tatoi Airport, you leave Varibopi entrance ( with signs to the square ) on your left and you continue straight on, after 300 m you bend slightly left ( straight on is the first Gate of the Park, not this one ! ) then drive continuously as the road goes and finally you reach the second Gate after 4,1 km from Varibopi entrance’s signs.
There is also a big surprise in this stroll. In an appropriate point will take place : the … ‘‘ Kopi Vasilopitas ’’ ( cutting of the New Year cake ) for the Year 2017 for Athens Strollers and Hikers ! For the one who will find the ‘‘ flouri ’’ ( gold coin ) he or she will gain … a free meal at the taverna ‘‘ Agios Merkourios ’’ where we’ll go, those who like to eat, after the whole fact. Actually, we’ll divide the bill with the number of the participants, minus the winner … !!
For those who are interested in participating, please declare up to3rd mid-day. Leader will be Anna Foteinou, e-mail geoplanf@otenet.gr Emergency phone 6945 386255.

So see you all there !
Georgos and Anna
