Niki - Kipi

Cyril and Methodius Route in Greece

Through mountains and valleys, along riverbeds, past lakes and seaside, villages and cities, the ancient Via Egnatia route goes 1000 km eastward to Istanbul. Parts of the old road have survived and are still there to enjoy for the observant hiker. Making use of the former Roman stations, this is a journey into history that will change your views on Europe. Via Egnatia stands for the cultural connection between East and West. Walking here offers a special insight into the amalgam of cultures that have become the Balkans.

The trail starts at the western border with the North Macedonia and continues to Thessaloniki from where it continues around the Aegean coast to the border with Turkey.
