The train then travels through Zachlorous mid-station , finally stopping at Kalavryta. The one-hour journey offers breathtaking views of natural landscapes.

Visit the Aghia Lavra monastery in Kalavryta, built in 961AD, where you can take in some wonderful examples of local history; the monastery is famously linked with the Greek War of Independence, as it was there that the call for Eleftheria h Thanatos (Freedom or Death) was first heard on 25 March 1821, launching the revolution against the Ottoman Empire.
