About Peloponnese

The Peloponnese is a quiet and exceptionally picturesque area to visit. It's full of small villages, unspoilt beaches, forested mountains, valleys and gorges as well as plenty of archaeological sites to explore.

A fly drive is a great way to see the countryside, stopping off in out-of-the-way places and interacting with local people.

The Peloponnese is home to Olympia, the site of the original Olympic Games, and the Byzantine monasteries of Mystras.

See Kalavrita with its rack and pinion railway; head to the mountains to visit tucked-away villages such as Vytina and Dhimitsana; visit the Argolis region, home to lovely Nafplion, the ancient site of Mycenae & amphitheatre at Epidavros; visit the many castles and fortresses dotted around the Peloponnese. Monemvasia (known as the Gibraltar of Greece) is certainly an unusual place in which to spend the night! The Mani, in the south of the Peloponnese, has a rich history, a wild mountainous scenery, quiet beaches and little fishing villages. The unspoilt beaches around the Peloponnese are amongst some of the most beautiful in Greece.
