Two island associations, the Anavasi Greek Cycling and Hiking Association of Aegina and the Association of Active Citizens of Aegina (Syllogos Energon Politon Aiginas), have cleared and marked ten paths so you can get to know the rich history of the island, its natural beauty, its culture, and its folk tradition. These paths were recently included in the Paths of Culture project of the Elliniki Etairia Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage. Nine of the ten paths have been numbered. They have a total length of about 45 kilometers and range from easy to moderate. Path Three (3) is circular, starting from the 2nd beach of Marathonas and climbing to Pachia Rachi, passing through the small settlement of Kapotides. After the church of Saint (Agios) Dionysios it turns right, and in 30 minutes it reaches Aegina's Ancient Olive Grove (Archaios Elaionas), where we will see olive trees 1500 to 2000 years old. Then the path descends, ending again in Marathonas.
