It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful small Greek towns, giving you the feeling that you are on an island, since the picturesque settlement is amphitheatrically built, with the Venetian castle at the top and the sea at his feet. The castle of Koroni, which stands tall above the beautiful town, was built by the Venetians at the end of the 13th century on the ruins of a Byzantine fortress. It is one of the few that is still inhabited today and its inhabitants are hospitable people with love for their place. The imposing castle is an excellent example of Venetian fortification technique with massive gates, underground passages, solid walls and square towers.
Koroni has amazing beaches, shallow but also deeper, some with fine sand and others with pebbles as well as many traditional tavernas and restaurants where fresh fish is served daily. It has an increasingly developing tourist infrastructure with many hotels, rooms and villas for a peaceful and pleasant stay.
It is worth noting that Koroni is one of the 7 Emblematic Communities of UNESCO for the protection, preservation and promotion of the Mediterranean Diet. The choice of Koroni is not just by chance, as the region harmoniously combines the triptych of local food products - tradition - history.
Koroni, like the whole region, is rich in agricultural products, dominated by excellent quality olive oil and the Koroneiki olive. Near Koroni, the areas Kalamaki and Peroulia are of great interest with their wonderful sandy beaches and amazing views.
