Mount Vitsi is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.113m (6,932ft) above the sea level, located in the southern part of the Florina and the northeastern part of the Kastoria regional units, in northern Greece.
Set high in the Verno mountain range, the road to the summit, also known as Mount Verno, is totally paved. It passes through picturesque settlements and green fields. Access to the summit is typically open all year round, with the occasional closure in winters due to dangerous weather conditions.
The road is pretty steep. Starting at Oxya, Kastoria, the ascent is 12.6 km (7.82 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 920 meters. The average gradient is 7.30%. Atop the peak -which has the shape of a pyramid- visitors can admire a little chapel and some communication facilities.
