Vitsi is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.128m (6,982ft) above the sea level, located on the Verno mountain range in the southern part of the Florina and the northeastern part of the Kastoria regional units, in northern Greece.
The road to the top is asphalted. Mountain Verno or Vitsi is somehow the continuation of Varnountas and then the natural boundary of the prefectures of Florina and Kastoria. This is an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains.
On the top there’s a ski station. Under the summit of Vernon – Vitsi, which has the sape of a pyramid, dominates the monument of civil war, to remind the rich history. This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs.
