Appollonia is a typical Greek village with white washed homes, narrow lanes, and wonderful people. The path between Appollonia & Artemonus is a must. Very peaceful, lovely and you can stop along the way and say hello to the people. The town has enough to offer to keep you eating well, shopping, and enjoy a night out.
