The walk starts at the Castro in Chora, through the narrow streets, and joins the road for a while, passing below Pantanassa and the Agios Savvas chapel. Reaching the historic church of Stavros, the walk returns to the footpath, heading south-west. The section up to Christos is mostly paved. After Christos, and with an open view to the sea, the footpath becomes narrower and rougher, descending towards the picturesque bay of Fira. From there, the footpath leads to the picturesque but busy bay of Aggali, along a coastal route in a rocky and steep landscape.

The route can also be followed backwards: Agali – Fira – Christos – Stavros – Chora
