Métsovo : Michelin's recommendations
The little town of Métsovo is admirably situated in a mountain cirque just below the highest road pass in Greece (1,705m) which marks the border between Epirus and Thessaly. It is surrounded by ancient forests of beech and pine trees. The town is not only a summer resort offering the benefits of bracing mountain air but also a winter sports centre with skiing on the slopes of Mt Karakóli. Métsovo is famous for its trout, its wine and its cheese as well as for its embroidered cloth and wood carvings.
