Lying adjacent to Attica, this region is equally enjoyable during the winter as it is during the summer. The shores of the Evoikos and Corinthian (Korinthiakos) gulfs, the ski centre of Mt. Parnassos, the wealth of archaeological sites at Orhornenos, Chaironia and Plataiai are all places of special interest.

The climate is dry and the vegetation, with the exception of the fertile plains of Thebes and Kopaida, is rather sparse among the bare rocks. In ancient times, Viotia was called "tristhalatto" (with three seas) -name mentioned by Strabo- because it was washed by the two halves of the Evoikos and the Corinthian gulf.

Viotia Today

Livadia, the capital of the prefecture, is built between two hills on the sides of a gorge through which the springs of Erkina flow and the distance from Athens is 135 km. On the top of Profitis Ilias hill, there is a well-preserved 14th century medieval castle.
In ancient times Livadia was known under the name of Mideia and was the site of the famous Oracle of Zeus Trofonios. Scholars have identified the location of the sanctuary of Zeus and the Oracle as being on Profitis Ilias. Livadia is very fertile thanks to the abundant water in the region and the two springs known in mythology as Lethe (Forgetfulness) and Mnemosyne (Memory), in the north of the town at the site of Kria.
Thiva, is built in a fertile, low-lying region, is very interesting archaeologically.

It is said that it has been founded by the Phoenician King Kadmos. Among the heros of Thebes, which became famous mainly for its adversities, is one of the most tragic figures of mythology, Oedipus, whose story inspired the most illustrious Greek tragedians, Aeschylus ("Seven Against Thebes"), Sophocles ("Oedipus Rex", "Antigone") and Euripides ("Phoenician Women"). Thiva was also the birthplace of Hercules, known for his wondrous feats. Apart from being the homeland of myths and heros, the city also gave birth to extraordinary men like the poet Pindar, the generals Epaminondas and Pelopidas, and others.

Arahovais a mountain, popular town. At an altitude of 940 meters, its quaint houses are built up the slopes of Mt. Parnassos. It s a good place to buy hand-woven fabrics, "flokates" (rugs) and coloured shoulder bags and you shouldn't miss trying the local specialties in one of the town's many taverns.
Arahova lies 35 kilimeters west of Livadia and is a usual stop for people headed for Delphi or the Parnassos ski centre. Most of the skiers spend their nights in Arahova.

Orhomenos, one of the oldest and richest cities of ancient Greece, is today a low-laying, well-watered town.
Worth visiting here are the Byzantine church of the Dormition of the Virgin (9th century) and a vaulted Mycenaean tomb known as the "Treasury of Minyes".
The ancient acropolis has ruins of temples, a theatre and other buildings. Don't leave Orhomenos without tasting its delicious trout, renowned throughout Greece, or its similarly famous fragrant melons.
