The Peloponnese remains one of the undiscovered beauties of Greece and has a very distinctive feel. It is unspoiled and wild, rich in mythology and history and, wherever you visit, you  brush against a rich cultural fabric of ancient sites, such as Olympia and Epidavros, and extraordinary medieval castles and fortified towns like Mystras and Monemvasia. Above all, this is a region of spectacular scenery, with vast, sweeping sandy beaches, lush gorges and forested mountains that stretch far inland.Discover awe-inspiring scenery as you travel along the Gulf of Corinth to Byzantine Mystras in the shadow of the Taÿgetos Mountains, before crossing the fertile Laconian plains of the southern Peloponnese to the hidden gem of Monemvasia. The landscape changes as you journey north to the outer Mani where cypress-clad hills tumble into the sea and inviting gorges offer splendid walking, before a final stay in chic Nafplion, the former Greek capital. As a tempting detour, you also have to option to visit the temples of Zeus and Hera at romantic and ancient Olympia.
