The entrance to Koroni

Einfahrt nach Koroni
The gyftika, or Kakoskali, is the first, while entering the town, neighborhood of Koroni.
On the left, the Messinian gulf, within an idyllic blue background, and on the right the 'Tourlakou' hill, the lucky eternal spectator onto its natural balcony. The narrow road is descending, bordered by old mansions and shops, and soon the visitor is wondering whether he should continue straight ahead or will he climb up the picturesque little stairs.
