Parnitha is the highest mountain in Attica with a height of 1413 meters. It is very close to the
center of Athens and it is an ideal place for mountain hiking because of its lush vegetation.
Its paths cut across forests of fir trees and oaks, its slopes shelter various sights such as the
Chapel of Saint Peter and the Former Royal Palace of Tatoi.
Hiking fans will love its paths and the tranquility it offers, unlike the hectic, noisy Athens.

The path starts from the cable car park and following the uphill route leads us to the top of the lift
next to the casino of the Mont Parness. The route takes place in the woods beneath the
cableways and its special feature are the hundreds wooden stairs. At the various openings of the
passage, we have the chance to admire amazing view of the Attica basin. After passing the
casino, head to a downhill route that leads us to the base of the shelter of Baffi. Unfortunately,
on this route are the signs of the recent fire that destroyed quite a large forest area of ​​Parnitha.
At this point, however, if we are lucky, we will meet some of the many deer of Parnitha. Arriving
at the base of Baffi shelter, we find signs that show us the direction to the shelter of Flamburi.
We follow the route and fortunately we are entering again to the beautiful forest. After we
follow the uphill route, we reach the provincial road just before the shelter of Flamburi. The
view is amazing. When the weather is clear, the island of Evia appears on the horizon.
Arriving at the shelter we can relax and enjoy a meal or drink. Then follow a downhill route that
offers unique viewpoints with a beautiful view of Athens and Attica, and so we get to the park of
the lift from where we started.
