  • Cloudy day in Paleochora. What to do? We decided to go to Sougia to visit the archaeological site of Lissos. Just arrived we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the small village of Sougia. The port is a path leading to Lissos: wonderful! You start the path going up the bed of a river then flows through a Gorge, climbs the mountainside and arrive on a plateau with breathtaking views. Then here and you walk through the ruins to get up to the beautiful beach of Lissos. The archaeological site is not treated but we all loved: finally no tourists, no bar or anything. If you are tired or is late (the walk is approximately 90 minutes) there is a possibility to call the taxi boat and that brings in the harbour of Sougia.

From there via katafytoy humble person will katalixete in Sougia. Please have with you water and little food because there is nothing there.
