A walk to Pedi from Chorio on Symi Greece.

This is just one of the ways to take a walk down to Pedi from the Old Town - which goes via the Symi countryside.

Also of course, once at Pedi you could also wander a little further along to visit the nice beach at Ag. Nikolaos).
From the cafe head down the Kali Strata and after a few metres turn right by Georgios taverna and follow the street and then take the next turning on the right (before reaching the Village Hotel) - this will bring you onto the main road. Turn right and follow the road soon passing a football pitch below you on the left and then a bus stop on the right. Look out for a yellow house on the left and here take a path (signposted) going downwards which passes just below a very small church. Continue along the sometimes walled path as it crosses the countryside to reach a bulldozed area - cross this and go up onto a track - turn left along the track and very soon go right on a signposted (Ancient Fortifications Drakos) path.

This really nice path goes between high stone walls and passes a stone shelter (dated 1909) - here there is a gate on the left which you can go through and have a snoop the other side of the wall.

Go left here on a very rubble track which crosses the dry streambed and then joins a wide track - go on passing a farm on the left and then reaching a newly built church** also on the left. Soon after you pass the church look out for a marked track on the right which goes through trees - just before reaching a walled garden and gate turn left and follow the path through more trees. The path swings round and then turns left by the side of a high wall and eventually comes out by a small church at Pedi.
