Greece. You will have the opportunity to stand on the bridge that passes over the
magnificent canal and to take some memorable pictures. After that we will continue our

Odontotos (rack railway train) has started 120 years ago to connect the seaside Diakopto
town, climbing 750 meters (from the surface of the sea) through the VOURAIKOS CANYON
with the Kalavryta town.
Since then Odontotos and Vouraikos river go together. Magnificent and unique route
through picturesque towns, villages, bridges and landscapes. At the end of the route you will
be at Kalavryta town.
Famous for the Greek revolution against Turkye in March 1821 .The liberation of Kalavryta
came 5 days later against Turkish resistance on 25 March. Also very famous from the World
War 2 and the Kalavryta Holocaust after the nazi invasion at December 9 in 1943 where the
Germans forced the people over 12 years old to walk on the hill ‘’kapi’’ and murdered the
entire male population. You will take a walk at the beautiful town of Kalavryta with the
graphic alleys, the gorgeous landscapes and you’ll get a taste of the local products.
You can visit the museum, the memorial of Kalavryta Holocaust and you can also rest at the
