Overview
Join me on a day trip to Monemvasia in a luxurious air-conditioned Mercedes Vito, with free WiFi on board. The old castle town of Monemvasia is a perfectly preserved medieval settlement still inhabited, a world cultural heritage monument and a major attraction for every traveler in the Peloponnese. It has a unique, magical atmosphere and a fascinating history. Monuments and churches are scattered throughout the old town. An important archaeological collection is housed in the old mosque in the Square of Elkomenos Christos.

    Stop: 2 hours
    The Castle of Monemvasia has a unique, magical atmosphere and a fascinating history. Monuments and churches are scattered throughout the old town. An important archaeological collection is housed in the old mosque in the Square of Elkomenos Christos. Your visit to Monemvasia will be a unique experience to travel back in time, in a castle-town with 15 centuries-old history, that is still inhabited. The so-called 'Gibraltar of the East', a small rocky island linked to the mainland through a short causeway, is full of myths and tales and has inspired great artists. Upon entering the gate of the Lower town, you will find yourselves in what looks like a magnificent scenery. Walking around the cobbled streets you will get acquainted to the history of this city that was founded by the Byzantine emperor, and all its consequent rulers: The Pope, the Franks, the Venetians and the Ottomans.
