Around 35 kilometres from the city centre, Tatoi is also a popular destination for cyclists. Those wanting to save their legs for the climbs or hoping to avoid the traffic getting out of town can jump on the useful but frustratingly infrequent OSE Proastiakos suburban rail service from Larissa Station towards Halkida and jump off at Dekelia, on the perimeter of Tatoi airfield. For a great day out in the saddle, follow Tatoiou all the way to the estate, then continue on to the summit and down the other side to pick up the train home from Afidnes. Or, if you have the time and the legs, cycle further on quiet, tree-lined local roads all the way to Avlona, for a good selection of tavernas to refuel and the opportunity to spot another abandoned treasure, a drive-in cinema, on your right hand side, near the motorway.
Tatoi is also popular with hikers, mountain bikers and off-road motorcyclists. While it’s hard to find information and maps on the trails (especially in English) there are many challenging but well-marked and maintained trails that criss-cross the mountains surrounding the estate.
