The ladder of Vradeto is located in the village Vradeto, which is one of the 46 villages of Zagorochoria of the prefecture of Ioannina. Vradeto is the highest village of Zagori and one of the oldest in the region. Because of its location offers endless view in all directions of Zagori. There is the famous ladder of Vradeto. It is a stone structure built by craftsmen with the local stone to connect Vradeto and Kapesovo. The ladder is fully harmonized with the natural environment, because it is built by stone of the region, therefore hardly distinguishable from the opposite side. The ladder of Vradeto consists of 1200 steps and 40 turns. Following the path you can enjoy superb style with which the stones were placed. The ladder is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful trails in Epirus and is a frequent hiking pass. This stone path is on the north side of Mezaria. The ladder of Vradeto was originally the entrance and exit from Vradeto as the current road was opened in the 1970s. Climbing the ladder takes about an hour, has a total length of 2.5 km. and the view that the visitor can see climbing is really more breathtaking. On the way you will come across some stone bridges. Vradeto and Kapesovo are divided by gorge of Mezaria who runs the homonymous stream. Starting from Vradeto the ladder descends the slope, passes a stone bridge and climbs the next side where Kapesovo stands. In Zagori there are other such ladders, but the ladder of Vradeto is considered the most beautiful. It is noteworthy that by 1974 the ladder of Vradeto was virtually the only way for Vradeto to communicate with other villages.
From Vradeto we can continue to position Beloi, located northwest of the village. The name Beloi probably came from the Slavic word meaning good view or balcony. The area is visited every year by thousands of tourists because there anyone can see the whole Vico and Voidomatis, which crosses the ravine.
