Favorite thing: Boeotia also Viotía is one of the 51-th prefectures of Greece and one of the 14-th I have been. I came there twice. Once from Delphi (Fokida) to Arachova. And for the second time on my way from Meteora (Trikala) to Athens (Attica). My VT-page on Prefecture of Viotia. You may see my way across Viotia on the map.
It is within the Central Greece periphery and its area was known in ancient times. Its capital is Livadeia but for me it corresponds with Arachova. Its bounding prefectures are Phocis in the west Phthiotis to the north and northwest Euboea in the east via a bay and a gulf and Attica to the south.
Arachova is a mountain small town next to Delphi. Its quaint houses are built up on the north slopes of Mount Parnassos. The name Arachova derives from the South Slavic words ‘ara’ and ‘hova’ which mean ‘walnut trees’ in reference to the many ones found in the area.
