Ancient Corals and Ith Tower

N 525.151', E 931.609'

Our rating: 6.00
Overall rating:
We offer you the option of a weekend trip. The length of this route is 4.5 km one way, the elevation is approximately 200 meters. The trail is available at any time, but it is better to choose good weather. You can go in the spring, during flowering, as well as in autumn and summer. We walked at 30 degrees heat, but since almost the entire route runs under the trees, it was quite comfortable to walk. In the summer, by the way, there are also quite a lot of flowers.

This, by the way, is a good example for everyone who wants to attract tourists, but does not have any historical or cultural places in their region. Make a parking, a trail, some kind of end point and thousands of people will visit your region. And if there is still a toilet, information plates and a restaurant, then tourists from abroad will come.
