Orei. Orei is a charming resort in the far north of Evia (134 kilometers/83 miles northwest of Halkis) and south of Trikeri and Pelion. This city, dating from 5000 BC, lies in the middle of a green area with beautiful sandy beaches, hills and plains. Orei had its heyday during the Classical period, and preserved many monuments from the Byzantine period. In the square of Orei is the marble statue of “the bull of Orei” which was a tomb in the 4th century BC. In Orei are also the ruins of a Venetian castle, built on the foundations of an old fort. At the harbor there are nice (fish) restaurants, cafes, ouzeries and bars and for your stay, there are plenty of hotels and accommodations in all price ranges.
