P.A.T.H project, financed for 864.000,00 euro under Priority Axis 2 – Integrated Environmental Management, aims to create new thematic routes both in Greece and in Italy, which will offer to the visitors the chance to discover wetland routes, mountain trails, historical cultural trails and paths of unique natural beauty and biodiversity. The choice of the above-mentioned routes will be implemented through the development of an integrated multimedia web-platform that will allow the final users to plan the visit according to their needs and to make available some never before published information on routes, as well as to record their own travel experience.
