For today you have a long walk, though not too demanding. Starting once again from the village square in Rapsani, you descend via footpaths and dirt tracks to the lush banks of the River ‘Xiropotamos’ and cross it via an ancient stone bridge.
Then you continue your descent, parallel to the river, to reach the unique Monastery of Agioi Theodoroi, a perfect place for a break. You then follow woodland paths along the riverbed, crossing it now and again. At the end of the track, you pick up a dirt track, now in ascent, passing several vineyards. You pass the Nunnery at Moni Sotiros, where you may be offered the traditional ‘loukoumi’. The last section follows a quiet country lane back to Rapsani.
Challenge: 4,5 hours, 16,5 km / 10 mi, 500m ascent, 500m descent
