The section Vytina-Nymfasia is 5.7km long and can be done in just two hours.
After resting and provisioning, leave Vytina and continue on the route leading to Nymphasia. After walking 850 meters on asphalt you’ll reach Old Vytina and the trailhead of the footpath that will leads to Mavra Litharia, a massive limestone boulder in the riverbed of Milaon River, that the stream cut in half creating a short yet impressive gorge. From here start descending to the Tzavarenas bridge, a solid stone bridge that secured the connection between Vytina with the western gortynian villages.
