Follow Aristotle's trail in Greece
Aristotle's Walk has been officially opened in northern Greece Beginning at the Natura 2000 network at Aristotle’s Grove and concluding at ancient Stageira in Olympiada, the philosopher’s birthplace, the 22km trail follows the path of the Aristotelian Mountain overlooking the Aegean Sea. The new trail has been described as an 'environmental tour and historical walk'. Aristotle's Walk is the first of eight historically-based walking trails on the peninsula of Chalkidiki, in northern Greece. The next seven trails will be launched in 2014, with Xerxes’ Walk the second route to be introduced. The northern peninsula of Chalkidiki is based close to the popular destination Thessaloniki. Aristotle was a Greek philosopher, with writings covering many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. He was also a teacher of Alexander the Great.
