Top vacation destinations in Peloponnese

A blessed land of untouched natural beauty, forged by centuries of exciting history, adorned by glorious architecture, and scented with the aromas of Greek herbs and orange blossoms.
Still unscathed by the effects of mass tourism, the Peloponnese is one of the most diverse regions in Greece. Graced with tall mountains and pristine beaches, glorious ancient ruins and dramatic medieval fortresses, villages where time seems to have stood still, and fascinating cities with modern vibes, this peninsula of wonders on the southern tip of mainland Greece feels like a tiny continent in its own right. In the Peloponnese, orange groves, vineyards, and century-olive trees fill the air with mesmerizing scents; and your table with mouthwatering dishes and superb wines. In the Peloponnese, old blends with new in an unparalleled way, calling you to explore the essence of real, authentic Greece. The best way to delve into the magic of the Peloponnese is to embark on a road trip that will reveal all the secrets of this enchanted land to you in the most eloquent way.
Inhabited since prehistoric times, the Peloponnese is one of the most exciting regions in Greece in terms of history, culture, and traditions. It was there that the famous Mycenaean Civilization - the first advanced civilization in mainland Greece- was born and flourished. It was also in the Peloponnese where the Greek War of Independence began, liberating the Greeks after 400 years of oppression under the Ottomans. Nafplio, the first capital of the free independent Greek state, is also in the Peloponnese. Nowadays, Nafplio is only one of several picturesque towns to visit in the Peloponnese, alongside five UNESCO World Heritage Sites and endless stretches of dreamy countryside. And, of course, let's not forget about the charms of Messinia, this sub-region of unfathomable natural beauty, which is steeped in legends, myths, and traditions that render it a unique destination. From the almost unbearably romantic medieval Castle of Monemvasia to the treasures of Ancient Olympia to the incredible Voidokilia Beach and other hidden gems of Messinia, the Peloponnese has something for everyone.
