A beautiful coastal town with incredible beaches, interesting sites, so close to Athens.

Kiato is a coastal town of 9,800 inhabitants 22km northwest of Corinth. The region had been inhabited since the Mycenaean era and the ancient city of Sicyon is only 4km southwest of Kiato. The economy of the city is based on commerce and recently it has become a popular tourist destination thanks to Kiato’s proximity to Athens, the incredible beaches and the most interesting sites, such as ancient Sicyon.
