sight seeing when in agios nikolaos.

just planning my days.

Hi there

The Happy Train goes to Kritsa, a mountain village to the southwest of Agios Nikolaos although there may well be other ones too. You can't get to the Katharo plateau without a car I'm afraid, there are no bus services and I'm not aware of any organised excursions.

Whereabouts is the Olive Oil farm?

In Agios nikolaos it's the Little Train , not the happy train. It does 3 excursions the best of which is Excursion 3 which leaves 3 days a week from the harbour of Agios Nikolaos, departure is at 12:30 and goes to the olive oil farm first for about 45 min the church of Panagis Kera for 30 min and the village of Kritsa for just over an hour. The excursion lasts for about 4 hours altogether. It is very busy at the moment so best to pop down to the harbour when you arrive to find out which day would be best and to book in advance.

Hi there

The olive farm isn't really genuine - as its was located near the Lidl supermarket until a couple of years ago and is now located near the Mirabello hotel - they also use a Donkey to run the mill stone or what ever its called, which although is what they would have done years ago doesn't mean you need to continue it today..its not a tourist attraction that I would want to visit in Agios :-(
