1276 – the path from Koutloumousiou to Iviron

Koutloumousiou - Iviron 03-10-2011After our short visit to Koutloumousiou we started walking to Iviron. With the help of a GPS-App I could trace the route that we walked and show it here on Google maps. The distance was 4,86 kilometers and it took us 1 h. 07 m (max altitude 432 m). I doubt if it was the fastest route, but who cares, it was beautiful all the way.

Here is how Zwerger drew this path:
