Kato Doliana is situated on the left bank of the river Tanos, on the south slopes of mountain Zavitsa. Particularly interesting are the natural caves that have formed due to the erosion of the terrain caused by the flow of the river. In Kato Doliana, with its very good climate and its impressive olive plantation, the visitor will find traditional coffee shops and tavernas. In the area, apart from the Villa of Herodes Atticus at Eva, one can also visit the ancient settlements of Kourmeki and Tsiorovos and the Byzantine Women's Monastery of Loukou.
