Levidi is located 25 kilometers north of Tripoli, next to the magnificent fir forest and is one of the most beautiful capital villages of Arcadia.

With its traditional architecture and genuine color it is a hug that opens to the slopes of Mainalo. Its many mansions, stone-built and arched, testify to the importance of Levidi. The village was involved in the revolution of 1821. On April 14, Levidi was given one of the historic battles of the revolution, in which the Greeks defeated the Turks but killed Captain Reader Striftbolas. Today there is a statue of the chieftain in the central square. The central square, with its shops, cafes and taverns around it, is a locus of attraction and concentration. Overlooking the majestic Mainalo, the plain, the green hill of Ascension, and the mountains of Artemisio and Helmos in the distance, it offers visitors tranquility, serenity and rest. In the square is the beautiful building of the Town Hall. In its basement is temporarily housed the small museum of Al. Papanastasiou with his personal belongings and his personal archive.
At the top of the hill is the church of Saints Taxiarches, dominated by two clocks, the old and the new. The old clock has its markers halted at the time the Germans blow it up. From this point there is a magnificent view of the settlement and the plain of Levidi. The location of the Church of the Ascension also offers a magnificent view. From Levidi you can see beautiful routes to Vytina, the archaeological site of Orchomenos and the ski resort of Ostrakina.
