The Peloponnese peninsula in Southern
Greece, apart from being one of the most varied landscapes in Greece is
home to archaeological and historical gems such as the Ancient site of
Olympia, Mystra, Sparta, Monemvasia, Gytheio, Kalavrita, Kalamata and of
course Epidavros and Myceanae.
Peloponnese has played a very important role over the years in the many
wars and occupations of Greece and in this way its monuments sites and
castles are of great historical interest. Mycenae for example is famous
for a whole era and is found just 40 minutes away from Tolo. The Ancient
site of Olympia and running track are legendary, as is the Ancient site
of Nemea along with its famous wine roads at just half an hour away.
Peloponnese is part of the mainland of Greece and is separated only by
the Corinth canal - a wonderful sight in itself and an excellent
excursion to take a boat through the canal. The countryside of the
Peloponnese is diverse and has something to offer to everyone whether it
be the amazing sandy beaches, high mountains and ski resorts in the
winter, amazing flora and fauna, the rare bird species, or the friendly
disposition of the Peloponnesians.
history, holidays and warm climate are what attract thousands of
visitors every year to the Peloponnese.
