Getting around

Also, the beautiful Amari Valley features unique natural sites like great gorges, ancient olive groves and magnificent countryside, along with 27 little villages to explore. Though some of the places are accessible by foot, a car is strongly advised in order to get full advantage of the area and explore even further to the rest of the island.
