A Press Fam Trip with representatives from the media from all over Greece was carried out by the municipality of Karystos in collaboration with Tourism Media & Events.

As part of the acquaintance trip, the first meeting for the development of a Trail Network took place at the Montofoli Estate, in the presence of invited journalists, as well as institutions and representatives of tourism.
The initiative of the Municipality of Karystos to organise, along with Tourism Media & Events the first acquaintance trip was well received by the participants and is actually part of a comprehensive action plan for the promotion and tourism development of the Municipality of Karystos.
The main goal was through this short stay, to bring the journalists in touch with the natural wealth and beauties of Karystos as well as to allow them to taste the quality local products; but mainly to feel, from Marmari and Karystos to Styra and Kafireas, the high level of hospitality of the locals.
With this action, the Municipality of Karystos seeks and expects that this unique experience lived by the media representatives will be transfered to the pages -electronic and printed-, on the radio, but also in the images of the television stations, so that its unique tourist identity can travel around Greece and make its competitive advantages widely known.
The Municipality of Karystos responds with a high sense of responsibility and strategy to the increased needs of the local economy, especially in this difficult period of the economic crisis that the pandemic of COVID-19 brings as a consequence.
In collaboration with professionals from the sectors of of tourism, trade, agricultural production and above all its citizens, the Municipality of Karystos faces with a plan, realism and optimism the new challenges that lay ahead.
And invites all summer travelers to safely “COME OVER”.
