Experience an unforgettable walking tour in the castle of Monemvasia accompanied by a local guide!
We invite you to a unique walking tour through the meandrous narrow streets of the old town, the fortress walls and the churches, to bring back to the life of the mythical castle-town throughout the centuries.
The Byzantines, the Venetians, the Ottomans, merchants from the West and the East, passed by Monemvasia leaving their marks on the buildings, the paved streets and the churches, giving it a cosmopolitan air.
We get acquainted with the wealth, the power and the glory of the town, as well as the invasions, piracy and the difficulties of the life on the rock.
Gazing at Myrtoo Sea below the imposing rock, we relive the stories and the legends, listen to poems written about this place, take a taste of magical Monemvasia.
Local history, architecture and culture are explained during the tour. It is also included a refreshing stop, with a little tasting of local products (olive oil, wine, traditional sweets, etc.)
