Private Tour to Monemvasia


Join me on a private day trip to Monemvasia in a luxurious air-conditioned vehicle, 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.

Itinerary

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. You will learn everything about its significant port that made Monemvasia one of the richest and most cosmopolitan towns of the Mediterranean and the wine produced there, that made it famous all over Europe. You will not miss the chance to visit some of the castle's 46 churches.
