Peloponnese: One of the most interesting regions in Greece. Excellent beaches, very fertile but with stony deserts too, cosmopolitan and remote resorts too. Numerous interesting sites such as Olympia the host in antiquity to the Olympic games, the palace of Agamemnon in Mycenae, the ancient theatre of Epidavros, the castles of Nafplio and Methoni, the Byzantine shells of Mystra and Monemvassia. A round of Peloponnese is highly recommended.
