Athens, Greece's capital, is located roughly 140 miles (225 kilometers) southeast of Karditsa, while Corfu is 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the west.
It's no surprise the area around Karditsa is a perennial favourite with with international and local vacationers alike; the region is criss-crossed with great natural and man-made attractions. Argithea and Agrafa are two more places worth visiting while you're in Thessalia.
Agrinio, is another interesting place to visit. It is approximately 60 miles (97 kilometers) from Karditsa and offers a great selection of tourist attractions, for example Dimokratias Square, Temple of Stratios Zeus and Dimokio Park. Agrinio has much to offer visitors happy to hang around a little longer. Stratos Ancient Theater and Archaeological Museum of Agrinion are other sights worth visiting.
To really understand a place, it helps to peer back through the mists of time. Thessalia's colorful castles are a great starting point. Enjoy a moment of serenity at Thessalia's mosques.
Thessalia offers plenty of exciting ways to get into its unique landscapes. Adrenaline junkies can enquire about one of the many abseiling or rock climbing adventures on offer. No break is really complete without a good dose of R&R. Beach combing is one of the activities they do to relax in this region and picnicking is another.
At the end of your adventure in this unique place, say goodbye the way they do in Greek, with a hearty "Yiá sou."
